GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The United Way of Greater Lafayette is preparing to help those who are struggling with housing payments as a result of coronavirus.
The non-profit is launching the Tippecanoe COVID-19 Housing Stability Hotline on Friday, June 5th.
Our goal is to help streamline the process for individuals who are seeking housing or utilities assistance, either mortgage or rent or utilities," said Michael Budd, CEO of the local United Way.
The governor's moratorium on evictions is set to end at the end of June. Budd wants people to start planning now should that moratorium end.
"We have three or four weeks before that will become an issue in the community, so we have some time to help people prepare and take care of the bills that they have building up," he said.
The hotline will be available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. United Way has not released the number yet because they don't want people calling before they are officially ready to help. That number will come out closer to Friday.
