Fort Wayne, Indiana: Posterity Scholar House Provides Affordable Housing and Transportation to Single-Parent Student Households

HUD User publishes a series of case studies based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities and support sustainable community development. The projects and community development efforts featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

Posterity Scholar House, a 44-unit affordable apartment development for single parents and their children, opened in southeast Fort Wayne, Indiana, in January 2019. The $12.6 million project was developed by the Indianapolis-based firm Black and White Investments and was one of the first two projects selected to participate in the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority's Moving Forward program. Through this program, IHCDA and the energy nonprofit Energy Systems Network provide access to technical design experts and funding assistance to accomplish Moving Forward's goal of reducing utility and transportation costs for low-income households. In 2020, Posterity Scholar House won a National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials Award of Excellence for Affordable Housing.
