The Indiana Eviction Task Force, which was created by the Indiana Supreme Court last fall, says there is a new tool to help Hoosier tenants and landlords impacted by COVID-19. The resource, HoosierHousingHelp.com, is designed to connect residents who are behind in their rent payments.
The website offers pre-eviction support and federal funds for emergency rental assistance.
The federal government authorized more than $400 million in rental assistance for the state of Indiana. The money is earmarked for renters who have experienced financial hardship associated with the pandemic.
The task force says the online tool provides information on receiving funds to cover past due rent, pay for future rent, reduce outstanding balances owed, or pay for utilities and home energy costs.
It can also help with eviction prevention and diversion programs.
