Indiana Rental Assistance Portal Now Active
Tuesday, July 14, 2020

On Monday, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority says the Rental Assistance Portal officially became active.

Hoosiers living outside of Marion County who need assistance to avoid eviction due to the coronavirus can visit the portal online and connect with programs that can help cover rent payments or past due rent.

Indiana Republican Governor Eric Holcomb, announced that 25 million dollars in relief for renters has been funded, and can be combined with other grants to assist with rent and utilities.

Last month, Holcomb announced $25 million in relief for renters through the COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program. This, combined with other funding sources including the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), will provide Hoosier renters that have been affected by COVID-19 with a variety of resources after they have applied through the Rental Assistance Portal.

The application can be found by visiting www.indianahousingnow.org.
