The state has opened another round of funding for the COVID-19 Response Program, which helps communities still recovering from the healthcare crisis.
The program is administered by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
OCRA says the eligible activities include mental health services, childcare services, public WiFi locations, food pantry or bank services, subsidence payment programs, or grants or loans to businesses to retain low-to-moderate jobs.
This is the third rounding of funding, which has so far awarded nearly $21 million in 112 grants from 62 communities.
“Based on additional research and community feedback, OCRA was able to open this round to municipalities of all sizes,” said Denny Spinner, executive director of OCRA. “Our main goal is to continue to address COVID-19 and remind communities that we are in this together.”
Proposals are being accepted until 11:59 p.m. ET Friday, January 29. Recipients will be named on April 1.
