IndyRent is accepting applications for rental assistance for up to 12 months. Previously, assistance was offered for up to three months. The City-County Council approved the expansion of benefits in September. The expansion was made possible with $91 million in rental assistance allocation from the Indiana Housing Community Development Authority.
Eligibility requirements include households at or below 80% of the area median income, have a reduction in earned income due to COVID-19 and are at risk of housing instability. Those who’ve previously received assistance are being contacted for the opportunity to access the expanded funds.
