COVID-19 (A Community Development Response)
Information and Resources Hub
A variety of Community Development Organizations (CDOs) and local units of government are looking for ways to manage through and build resilience during these challenging times. That's why Prosperity Indiana is providing an information and resources hub for its members. We've designed the hub to answer questions, glean ideas, and share resources such as sample policies and procedures, etc. Please check regularly for updated information.
If you're willing to share COVID-19 or other emergency response policies, resources, and ideas with peers or ask questions, please email us.
The CDC's Eviction Moratorium has been extended through October 3, 2021, for areas with "substantial" or "high" spread of COVID-19. View the COVID Data Tracker to see if your county or city qualifies.
According to the Order, "If a U.S. county that is covered by this Order no longer experiences substantial or high levels of community transmission for 14 consecutive days, then this Order will no longer apply in that county, unless and until the county again experiences substantial or high levels of community transmission while this Order is in effect." The CDC's Order may be accessed here.
Tenants who previously completed and submitted a Declaration Form to their landlord do not need to complete a new form. Download the Declaration Form in multiple languages here.
