The fund is administered by the IU Health Foundation. This marks the second round of annual grants from the fund for the 2020 grant year. An early second-round grant, of $765,000, was made in June 2020 to more than two dozen organizations around the state helping Hoosiers cope with social and economic hardships during the pandemic. While the latest round of grants focuses on early learning and childcare support — a pressing need during the pandemic — funding also supports affordable housing, workforce development and programs combating food insecurity.
The grants respond to requests submitted by community organizations.
