INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-33 on Tuesday to extend the prohibition on evictions, foreclosures, and the disconnection of utility services.

According to a released statement, the prohibition on evictions from rental properties and the prohibition on filing foreclosures are both extended through July 31. Renters, homeowners, lending institutions and landlords are encouraged to establish payment plans to avoid later evictions or foreclosures.

The statement also said Hoosiers struggling to pay rent due to the impact of COVID-19 may be eligible for rental assistance. Applications for the Indiana COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program will be accepted online beginning at 9 a.m. ET on Monday, July 13 at IndianaHousingNow.org.

Utilities regulated by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission must follow the order issued Monday prohibiting service disconnections through Aug. 14. Under Executive Order 20-33, non-regulated utility companies must also extend service until Aug. 14. Customers and utility companies are encouraged to establish payment plans now for those who are behind to avoid later discontinuations of service.

The executive order also extended the temporary licensing of specific health care workers who do not currently hold an active license to practice for an additional 30 days to allow them to assist in screenings, telemedicine and other basic procedures. 

These professionals must register with the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency via their website at www.in.gov/pla.
