(LaPorte, IN) - Helping to pay rent and utility bills could skyrocket in the coming weeks. Center Township Trustee Lisa Pierzakowski says stimulus checks and larger Unemployment payments have helped keep requests for assistance down and so has the ban on utilities getting disconnected and eviction notices served. However, she says action on delinquent bills will resume again soon as some of the government financial aid starts running out.
Pierzakowski says her office is ready for a possible surge in requests for assistance.
She emphasized people expecting to need help start applying at her office for assistance now to avoid being disconnected and evicted.
