HUD Secretary Ben Carson Visits Opportunity Zone in Indianapolis


[Music] Well, first of all, delighted to be back here in Indianapolis particularly on such a beautiful day and it’s very exciting to see this project going on. Just a little while ago we had a chance to visit the historic PR Mallory where a group of nonprofit development companies have partnered together to develope into this thing that will really have a tremendous amount of service for this whole community and this group is cultivating the campus into two affordable senior housing developments including Indiana’s very first energy net-positive residential development as well as two charter schools. In many ways the renewal of the PR Mallory campus reflects the revitalization of America’s heartland which is happening all across the country. We’re seeing the rebirth of our national spirit, our pride, positivity and potential. RAD has proven to be a powerful tool for public housing authorities to preserve affordable housing and to serve more eligible households and to maximize the impact of our existing commitments. There’s really nothing that can stop these United States as long as we remain united.
