Public Law 193-2011 required the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) to post Internet web site links concerning materials described in the statute on the IDOH’s web site.

Indiana 211 Service

Indiana 211 Partnership, Inc. (IN211) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building the 2-1-1 system for Indiana. The goal is to create a seamless network of information and referral services that enables anyone in Indiana in need of human services to have quick referrals to those who provide them by dialing 2-1-1. Additionally, aggregate data will be collected to assist communities in assessing needs and allocating resources.

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) recognized the Partnership as the proper administrator for the 2-1-1 dialing code on February 20, 2002, and issued a final order on June 17, 2004. The Indiana General Assembly passed legislation supporting 2-1-1 that became effective July 1, 2004 (I.C. 8-1-19.5). IN211 is actively working to implement 2-1-1 service in order to serve all Hoosiers through linked IN211 Centers.
