Indiana State and Local Funds

Indiana State and Local Funds

Legislation dating back to 1894 applies to Indiana's 1,008 towns and townships, requiring them to provide "poor relief" that can include housing, utility, food, and medical assistance. In Indiana, townships are local governmental units within counties and cities, with their own elected boards and trustees. "Poor relief" is funded by property taxes, and each local entity can establish its own guidelines on how the funds can be spent.
