COVID-19 relief is on the way to more area not-for-profits. 

In a release, the mayor’s office says the Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region has awarded $250,000 to eleven nonprofit agencies addressing community needs related to the pandemic.

The sixth round of allocations includes $71,000 for Youth First.

The group will provide social workers to support high-need students in Vanderburgh, Warrick, Posey, and Gibson counties.

Youth First will also partner with the Dream Center, Potter’s Wheel, and other non-profits to offer food, programming, and resources to a broad group of Evansville children over the summer.

The city says the Response Fund has awarded more than $1.2 million to more than 60 area nonprofits, and the city encourages agencies to keep applying for the money.

The fund has raised more than $5 million, which includes a project of Indiana United Ways, with funding provided by the Lilly Endowment.

Other new recipients include the ARK Crisis Child Care Center, Aurora, and the Tri-State Food Bank.
