Active Applications: 

The Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority (IHCDA) will continue to process applications for individuals who completed and submitted an IERA application before 5:00pm EST July 29, 2022.

 


 

Application Status: 

IHCDA will send an email to applicants’ registered email address notifying them of their acceptance or denial into the IERA program.

IHCDA will also send an email to applicants if additional information or documentation is required from the applicant to determine IERA eligibility.

Applicants may inquire about the status of their application by contacting the ERA 2 Provider assigned to their county.

 


 

IERA Recertification: 

Individuals who enrolled in IERA 1 (2022)

Approved IERA 1 applications must be recertified every 3 months. Clients are eligible to recertify 45 days prior to the 3-month deadline and may do so by visiting IndianaHousingNow.Org

If you require assistance or have questions about recertifying your IERA application, contact the ERA 2 provider assigned to your county.

 

 

Individuals who enrolled in IERA 2 (2023)

 

Successful enrollment in IERA 2 will provide applicants with a one-time rental assistance payment of 3 months forward facing rent and any arrears.

Applicants who enroll in Housing Counseling Services with one of our network providers may qualify for 3 additional months of rental assistance by meeting the following criteria:

  • Applicant has applied to IERA 2 and received assistance
  • Applicant is currently participating in Housing Counseling/Case Management
  • Applicant has achieved an improved score of self-sufficient or thriving in any one of the twelve life areas of the Family Development Matrix wherein the household initially scored lower than self-sufficient.

 

 


 

Housing Counseling and Navigation Services: 

ERA 2 network providers can assist Indiana renters by providing housing stability counseling that focus on improvement in life areas including but not limited to education, income, housing, and employment.

To sign up for housing counseling services contact the ERA 2 Network provider assigned to your county.

 


 

Legal Assistance Kiosks: 

We now have an IBF Kiosk online and available for use in ALL 92 counties. A map is available on IndianaLegalHelp.org .

To access the map you may go to IndianaLegalHelp.org. Scroll directly to the bottom of the page and select “Partner Resources” from the column entitled “Shortcuts”. 

You can expand the map to search for kiosks by geography. Once you identify the kiosk nearest the desired location, you may click the icon for the specific address. Alternatively you may click the “down arrow” next to the word library. This expands the list to show all kiosks located in libraries, courts, and other locations. You may then click the link for the specific address and building type.
