Housing Progress in Dubois County

A critical area of focus in Dubois Strong’s Strategic Plan is to help local employers attract and retain workforce. We began to facilitate the community conversation about the need for additional workforce level housing in the fall of 2014. The data from our housing study completed in June 2015 documented the need for workforce housing near the employment centers in Jasper, Huntingburg and Ferdinand.

Since these efforts began, approximately 70 new housing units have been constructed and over 686 are in progress or planning stages in each of the larger municipalities of Dubois County. The housing demand represented is based upon the Dubois County Housing Strategy.
