Hoosier Uplands has been awarded a grant through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority to provide transportation assistance to those in need. This program will run from October 1, 2021 - September 30, 2022, and is available to clients that are at or below 125% of the federal poverty level and must demonstrate that they have a need that is related to the COVID-19 pandemic in some way. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate a need for assistance to gain/maintain employment and or access to community resource services. The types of assistance provided will include:
* Gas cards up to $250
* Transportation vouchers up to $250
* Vehicle repairs up to $1,000
* Car payments up to $500
* Car insurance premiums for up to three months and no more than $600
Other transportation needs outside of these listed up to $500 will also be considered. This other category of transportation assistance may include, but is not limited to, assisting individuals with driver's education course costs, driver's license reinstatement fees, license plate/vehicle registration fees, and/or driver's license issuance/renewal fees. Due to the broadness of these transporation needs, specific requests falling under this component will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis. Clients will be required to complete an application for assistance that provides their statement of need as well as income verification. Qualifying households are eligible for up to $1,500 total for transporation related needs.
