FortWayneHousingNow.org is funded by City of Fort Wayne allocated annually from The Department of Housing and Urban Development to the City of Fort Wayne. The website is a sister service to the widely used, statewide IndianaHousingNow.org website, which was developed with support from a number of nonprofit and government organizations, including Indiana Coalition on Housing and Homeless Issues (ICHHI) and Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA).
The housing locator service allows people to locate available housing that best fits their individual and family needs. The service can be accessed online 24 hours a day and is supported by a toll-free, bilingual call center M-F, 9:00 am - 8:00 pm EDT. Individuals can easily search for housing using a wide variety of search criteria with special mapping features and receive apartment listings that provide a multitude of important information about each unit. In addition, the site connects people to other housing resources through website links and provides helpful tools for renters such as an affordability calculator, rental checklist, and renter rights and responsibilities information.
The site uses software created by Socialserve.com, a national non-profit provider of housing locator services. Socialserve.com is responsible for maintaining the site and providing toll-free call center support.
