Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance – Housing Stability Services


The Indiana Emergency Rental Assistance Program (IERA) is now offering legal services in partnership with the Indiana Bar Foundation (IBF).

IHCDA awarded $13.1 million to IBF to provide legal services, legal navigation, and self-help kiosks to renters facing eviction throughout the State of Indiana. These resources will help Hoosiers in all 92 counties understand their rights and responsibilities as tenants before and during the eviction process.

Eviction filings in Indiana are a civil matter where parties must provide their own counsel. By providing access to legal services and counsel, IBF is providing parties that might otherwise have gone without counsel, the opportunity to access legal services and representation.

IBF has a network of trusted legal providers working across the state including:

  • Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Inc.
  • Indiana Legal Services, Inc.
  • Indianapolis Legal Aid Society, Inc.
  • Legal Aid Corporation of Tippecanoe County
  • Legal Aid Society of Evansville, Inc.
  • Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic
  • Pro Bono Indiana, Inc.
