Rent Assistance

The Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance (IERA) program is currently accepting applications from Indiana renters who are behind on their rent and/or utility payments. Eligible Hoosiers can receive up to 15 months of assistance in past-due and forward-facing rent and utilities which includes electric, gas, water/wastewater, and bulk fuel. To qualify for assistance, a household must meet three criteria – be at or below 80% of the area median income, have been financially impacted by COVID-19, and be at risk of homelessness or housing instability.

Renters experiencing a hardship are encouraged to apply for assistance at or by calling 2-1-1.

Applications are available in English and Spanish.
