Gov. Holcomb Signs Executive Order To Prevent Evictions, Foreclosures, Utility Disconnections

Governor Eric Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-33 to continue to assist those that are struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) — The prohibition on evictions, foreclosures, and the disconnection of utility services in Indiana has been extended. 

Today, Governor Eric Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-33 to assist those that are struggling by prohibiting evictions from rental properties as well as filing forecloses through Friday, July 31. 

It is recommended that renters, homeowners, lending institutions and landlords establish a payment plan to avoid later evictions or foreclosures. 

Indiana residents that may be struggling to pay rent due to the impact of COVID-19 could be eligible for rental assistance. Applications will be accepted online beginning on Monday, July 13 at 9:00 a.m. at www.indianahousingnow.org.

Utilities regulated by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) are required to follow the order issued Monday by the commission prohibiting disconnecting services through August 14. Non-regulated utility companies must also extend services under Executive Order 20-33. 

Customers and utility companies are encouraged to establish payment plans now to avoid later discontinuations of service.

The temporary licensing of health care workers that do not currently hold an active license to practice has been an additional 30 days, including:

  • medical professionals who retired or became inactive in the last five years
  • medical professionals who hold licenses in other states
  • certain medical students and graduates

These professionals must register through the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency at www.in.gov/pla to assist in screenings, telemedicine and other basic procedures to allow regularly licensed medical professionals to be on the frontline.
