During the COVID pandemic, a fund is still providing tax assistance to Indiana homeowners



Indianapolis, Indiana — The Indiana Homeowner Relief Fund is a financial aid program for qualified Indiana residents who have suffered from loss of income as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

More than 3,500 qualifying applicants have received assistance from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority’s fund, which has distributed more than $40 million through the program.

Also, online candidates have access to a housing advisor who can advise them and tell them about their possibilities.

Homeowners that fit these criteria may apply for aid:

• Impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and experienced financial hardship on or after Jan. 21, 2020.
• Own only one mortgaged home.
• Property to be assisted is the primary residence.
• Have an income equal to or less than 150% of the government-determined area median income adjusted for household size, or 100% of the government-determined national median income, whichever is greater.
• Live in Indiana.

According to Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Indiana’s secretary of agriculture and rural development, “As the time for annual property assessments approaches, it is important for Hoosiers to know that IHAF can possibly pay for delinquent and future property charge fees, including property taxes. Homeowners in Indiana who anticipate having difficulties paying their property taxes, or who already have delinquent property taxes, should visit for more information and to start an application”
