Metro United Way is pleased to announce that it will receive a second COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative grant for $706,057 from Indiana United Ways, the state professional association of which Metro United Way is a member. The grant, made possible by funding Indiana United Ways received from Lilly Endowment Inc., will be used to support our community in meeting basic human needs brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The second COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative grant again calls for United Ways that receive funding to leverage partnerships and relationships to better meet COVID-related basic needs aligned with the social determinants of health as defined by the CDC. Specifically, Metro United Way plans to distribute dollars as quickly as practicable to address the immediate, basic and essential needs of local communities suffering the ongoing physical, social, and economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Metro United Way will begin accepting funding requests from area human and social service nonprofits whose IRS designation is in good standing beginning Tuesday, July 13, 2021.
