Through the use of local and national researchers, CHIP gathers data and information to generate reports and to inform community-wide decisions. We then drive action by recommending best-practice strategies and emerging housing solutions to implement in Indianapolis.

CHIP’s research projects use data and information from our community, combined with national data and information, to establish shared knowledge and suggest actionable recommendations to improve housing and services provided in Indianapolis. We also actively evaluate current Indianapolis housing and services models in order to understand their impact and to maximize their effectiveness.
