All across the Midwest communities large and small are challenged with housing issues.  In 2015, MCDC contracted with Maxfield Research to complete a county-wide housing assessment divided into 5 submarket areas.  The study examined needs for senior housing, rental housing and for-sale housing.  In addition, the study examined various levels within each type of housing. 

This study was funded by several local organizations such as the Marion County Community Foundation.  Since its release in March, 2016, several new housing developments are now underway.
