Welcome to The Penn Township Trustee Website
Penn Township has a population of 67,855 according to the 2020 Federal Census. This gives our township a rank of 16th out of 1009 Indiana townships in terms of population size.
As a Township government our primary responsibility is fire protection and advance medical services along with providing emergency and/or temporary funding for basic necessities (shelter, utilities, burial, medical, clothing, food, transportation to seek employment, and household essentials).
You will find instructions on this site on whom to contact regarding any of the above services. Including phone numbers and e-mail addresses for the Township Trustee and all elected Township Board members. Our ability to conduct the business of the Township is only as effective as our ability to know the will of those who elected us to serve.
In order, for the Penn Township Trustee’s Office to provide the best services to our clients, we have adjusted our intake process in which an individual may seek assistance. We have re-opened to the public by appointment only. Applications are available to be picked up 24/7 at the Trustee’s Office located in an information box by the front door. If you would like to review our application with a staff member, please call 574-256-6213 to schedule an appointment.
Although we will not be seeing all clients face to face, some additional information may be needed. This process will be done over the phone with an Investigator, by physically dropping documents off through our mail slot, and submitted via email or fax. All applications will be processed in a timely fashion in order to continue providing excellent assistance to our community.
