Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced on June 24, 2020 the Indiana COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program. This program is designed to help Indiana renters whose income has been adversely affected by COVID-19 avoid eviction by providing up to $2,000 in assistance to help cover monthly rent payments or late fees.
The application to apply will be available online beginning on July 13, 2020 at 9:00 am EST.
Applications will be accepted through www.IndianaHousingNow.org beginning July 13, 2020 at 9:00 am Eastern time.
Indiana will continue 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.
If you are an Indiana homeowner who’s fallen behind on your mortgage payment due to involuntary unemployment, underemployment, divorce, death of a spouse or medical hardship, we want to help you stay in your home. Our federally funded program provides one-time reinstatement only assistance of up to $30,000 for those that qualify. For more information please visit: http://www.877gethope.org/.
