Duties of the Trustee
Legislation has been in effect in Indiana since 1894 that requires that Indiana's 1,000+ towns, local governments and townships provide "poor relief" to citizens. This relief can include many things, such as rent help, housing, food, utility bill assistance, and medical assistance. Because of its “grassroots” structure, the Township Trustee system is designed specifically to quickly meet the needs of the individual in an emergency.
