The city of Indianapolis announced the tenant deadline to apply for the Rental Assistance Program will be 5 p.m. on Dec. 2. Landlords will have until 5 p.m. Dec. 9 to complete the landlord portion of the application.
“The Rental Assistance Program has made a tangible difference for thousands of Indianapolis families,” Mayor Joe Hogsett said in a statement. “But we know the need is greater than what we can offer with the existing CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security] Act funds. We continue to implore Congress to step up and make sure homeowners, renters, business owners and workers are protected from financial ruin.”
So far, over $26 million in rental assistance has been provided to more than 12,000 households.
After Dec. 2, residents may submit their name and contact information to receive notifications in the event future federal funding is available for rental assistance. For more information, visit www.indyrent.org.
