Regionally Speaking, Monday, May 3, 2021

Affordable Housing Online

Today:  two conversations about affordable housing:  first, with Jamie Palmer, the lead researcher on a project with the Indiana University Public Policy Institute which is examining challenges facing Indiana communities, including affordable housing – internet connectivity and drug abuse.  "Prosperity Indiana" policy director Andrew Bradley will later talk about a recent report from the organization and the National Low Income Housing Coalition, on where Indiana really ranks in being an affordable place to live.   And we have a conversation with Mike Mussallem, a Gary native and Irvine, California business executive who, along with his wife, set up a big scholarship fund to support NWI students to attend Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute.   

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
