COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund distributes more funds

Local

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) —  25 nonprofits recently received more than $450,000 from the COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region.

Agencies from each of the fund’s five county regions- Gibson, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick were approved for funds to assist with operations, food and financial needs.

The fund says money will continue to be awarded. With all three rounds of funding combined, the Response Fund has awarded a total of $654,000 to area nonprofits and raised over $4,900,000. The fund’s target is $6 million.

“We use the word target instead of goal because we don’t know how much money this response will require. This is a big deal in our community and we know our response needs to be protracted over a period of time,” Pat Creech, Welborn Baptist Foundation Executive Director, said.
