Another round of COVID-19 relief funding has been distributed to 12 area nonprofit organizations to bolster their pandemic response programs.

The COVID-19 Crisis Response Fund of the Greater Evansville Region said Monday it had awarded its 12th round of allocations, granting over $300,000 to 12 local nonprofits.

The funds distributed in the 12th round of allocations will help provide funding for food pantries, social/emotional learning resources for students, basic necessities for homeless youth, nutritional food service for underserved breast cancer patients, mental health services, and operational deficits due to canceled fundraising events.

Among the 12 nonprofit organizations to receive funds was the YMCA of Southwestern Indiana, which received $150,000 to continue its outreach programs to vulnerable and at-risk students.

Due to the pandemic, the YMCA has experienced significant decreases in membership and event revenue, which has resulted in an operational deficit for the program. Additionally, the organization is not eligible for a second round of the Paycheck Protection Program.
