Assistance for Tenants

The Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance (IERA) program is designed to decrease evictions, increase housing stability, and prevent homelessness by helping renters whose income has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 with rent and utility assistance. IERA can provide eligible renters with up to 12 months of utility assistance. Utility assistance may be provided to qualifying applicants for past due expenses for utilities (electric, gas, water, sewer, and trash) and home energy (fuel oil, wood, coal, pellets, and propane).
