COVID-19 Hotline Established to Assist with Home/Utility Payments

Housing Hotline

The City of Lafayette is pleased to announce, in partnership with United Way of Greater Lafayette, The Greater Lafayette Community Foundation, and over 15 separate agencies in Tippecanoe County, a COVID-19 Hotline to assist those citizens affected by the pandemic with their mortgage, rent or utilities payments. 

Governor Eric Holcomb has extended the moratorium of evictions, foreclosures, and utility shutoffs until June 30, but if you are having issues making your payments, DO NOT wait until June 30 to request assistance.

The Hotline will have trained navigators to connect callers with resources throughout Tippecanoe County, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm, ET.  All callers will receive a response from a referred agency within one business day.  If a caller leaves a message, he/she will receive a returned call within one business day as well.

“The COVID-19 Hotline will be so beneficial to the citizens of Tippecanoe County affected by the pandemic”, states Mayor Tony Roswarski.  “From additional resources that have come to our community, it has brought together 15 different agencies with trained navigators to assist those with issues on their mortgage, rent or utilities payments.  I personally want to thank Adam Murphy, with the City’s Homeless and Community Outreach Program, on his work to help with the set-up of the Hotline and training of the navigators. The collaboration between all those involved will provide the peace of mind to those in need of assistance.”
