The Indiana COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program is made possible by the allocation of $25 million of Indiana’s CARES Act discretionary funding with the goal of reducing evictions and increasing housing stability for Indiana’s renter households.
Individual households who have experienced a loss of income due to the pandemic may be eligible for rental assistance up to $500 per month for four months, for a total maximum benefit of $2,000 per household.
Applications will be accepted through www.IndianaHousingNow.org beginning July 13, 2020 at 9:00 am Eastern.
Also during Wednesday’s press conference, Governor Holcomb announced that he would be extending the stay on evictions until July 31, 2020.
In the meantime, Indiana residents unable to make their rent payment should speak with their landlord and request a payment plan. Additional resources, and answers to frequently asked questions, can be found in the Coronavirus Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Guide.
