Gap Avoidance Program (GAP)
Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) has identified a trend in which projects that have received CDBG awards are facing post-award financing gaps. These can be caused from a number of situations including construction bid overruns. Financing gaps often cause project delays and force communities to have to identify additional funding sources in order to complete the project. The Indiana Bond Bank has created GAP in partnership with OCRA as a financial tool that will offer an additional funding option in these instances.
