Eviction Aid Program Launched by Court
The Indiana Supreme Court has set up an facilitation program to help handle the high volume of cases.
It’s called the Landlord and Tenant Settlement Conference Program and it’s free.
Indiana Supreme Court administrators say they set up the program to handle the high volume of rent and eviction issues occurring because the pandemic has put so many people out of work. As we’ve reported previously, in Evansville, nearly three thousand rental households could be facing eviction.
In a release, Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush said that the program will use trained volunteer facilitators to work with landlords and tenants on negotiating back rent payments or move-out dates without the long term issue of renters having an eviction on their records as they look for new housing.
