Hispanic Coalition resource guide:


The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) has a new program that can provide up to 12 months in emergency rental assistance to help cover past due and ongoing monthly rent and utility payments for qualifying Indiana renters. Renters have to apply but the payments are made directly to landlords and utilities. The IHCDA program covers all of the state except for Elkhart, Hamilton, Lake, Marion, and St. Joseph counties, and the City of Ft. Wayne. These counties/communities have their own programs. The word on the street is that IHCDA will also have a similar program for homeowners starting this summer.


The website (top of the home page) has the link for renters to apply as well as information sheets for renters, landlords, utility providers, and internet providers.
