The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region has awarded $200,000 to seven nonprofit agencies addressing community needs related to the novel Coronavirus.
The first round of allocations will help with food procurement and distribution. The allocations committee will begin assessing applications for a second round immediately.
The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region will continue awarding monetary support to local nonprofit organizations that are focused on relief, recovery, and restoration as local COVID needs evolve.
