Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority announced today that they are now accepting applications for the next round of the Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance (IERA) program. IERA can provide eligible renters with up to twelve (12) months of rental assistance. Qualifying applicants may also receive utility and/or home energy assistance for past due utilities (electric, gas, water, sewer, and trash) and home energy (fuel oil, wood, coal, pellets, and propane) expenses and internet/ broadband assistance for past due internet expenses.

ATTENTION HOMEOWNERS: You must select “Rent Our Home” and apply for assistance on your site rent.

ATTENTION RENTERS: Please make sure to include both site and home rent.

You may be eligible for the program if you meet the following criteria:

  • Qualify for unemployment or have experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19
  • Demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability
  • Have a household income at or below 80 percent of the area median

If you meet the eligibility requirements listed above you are encouraged to apply for the program. However, this is not intended to be a complete list of eligibility requirements.

Important Note: Individuals living in Lake County are not eligible to apply for the IERA program. Households living in these areas must apply for rental assistance with their local municipality.

We are kindly requesting that you send us a copy of your completed application once you are finished. This will help us for purposes of tracking the rental assistance. Please reach out to us immediately if you have any questions!
