The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority announced earlier this week that it will “suspend” accepting new applications for Indiana’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program.
The deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, July 29. This is because “almost all” of the federal funds allocated to the state have been requested.
The National Housing Authority will continue to issue payments to households already approved and will continue to process pending applications.
So far, the rental assistance program has paid out and committed $365 million.
The agency estimates that it has about $80 million left.
