Gateway to Life

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Gateway to Life (GTL) is an initiative of Kingdom Apostolic Ministries and the Northeast Indianapolis Community Service Corporation that seeks to increase the social mobility of at least 1,000 residents of the Near Eastside of Indianapolis by 2025 through holistic community development. Recognizing the interconnected nature of inequalities affecting Black Americans, GTL is taking a multifaceted approach to simultaneously address housing, health, education, financial literacy, and job access in three Indianapolis zip codes.

GTL and Black and White Investments (BWI), a Black-owned real estate development company, have secured $45 million in financing and tax credits to redevelop 249 affordable housing units and are seeking an additional $3 million in a low-interest impact investment to close the funding gap.
