INDIANAPOLIS — Affordable housing has become a major concern for many families during the pandemic.

Governor Holcomb signed an order Thursday extending Indiana’s moratorium on evictions and foreclosures to June 30. However, according to the Hoosier Housing Coalition, the extension is only delaying an inevitable struggle, reports WTHI.

The group issued recommendations for housing security response, including halting evictions until July 25.

An estimated 258,782 Indiana renters will need assistance from May through September, according to figures from the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

This means more than 186,000 Hoosiers will still need rental assistance in June 2021.

If only the government had sent everyone some money (maybe $1200/person and $500/kid) then people could have paid their rent.
