Rental Assistance

Notification — Effective July 29, 2022

The Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance (IERA) program has paused accepting applications to analyze and determine the amount of funds available to assist new households.

Go to IndianaHousingNow.org to be notified if the portal reopens for new applications.

If you have already applied for IERA your application will be processed. Please continue to check your email frequently and provide any additional information that we may request from your household.

If your household is currently receiving IERA assistance, your assistance will not be affected. However, it is required that you recertify every three months to make sure that you receive your full 18 months of assistance. Please click the link on the portal and complete and submit the Recertification Application when it becomes available.

Important Note

If you live in Hamilton County or Marion County (Indianapolis), you should continue to apply to the programs serving those counties unless you and your landlord are participating in the Indiana Eviction Diversion Program.

If you are currently receiving rental assistance or have applied and are waiting to see if you are eligible, please call or email customer service at (317) 800-6000 or IERA@ihcda.in.gov.
