It's not the stimulus check some were expecting, but a last-minute grant could help Evansville residents keep their lights on as the Coronavirus Pandemic plays out.
Evansville's Board of Public Works has approved $70,000 to provide emergency assistance for utility payments.
Those funds will come from the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, provided by Aurora.
Households negatively impacted by the pandemic can apply for Rental Assistance through Indiana's Housing Portal, before a verification process is conducted by Aurora.
For families needing help with past-due payments, more resources can be obtained by calling the Evansville Covid-19 Resource Call Line at (812) 901-1059 Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM.
