*Landlord participation is NOT required for this program, but IHCDA will attempt to work with landlords to verify amounts due and to issue payments.

IERA can provide up to 12 months of rental assistance covering both arrears and forward-facing rent.  Assistance can also be provided, if requested, for utility, home energy, and internet arrears as long as the utility is in the name of one of the tenants listed on the lease and the utility is not paid as part of the monthly rental payment.  Additional requirements apply for internet assistance eligibility, as outlined in the application.

*The person filling out this application will be considered the Head of Household for rental assistance purposes.
