COVID-19 Assistance Relief Fund
About the Fund
The Central Indiana COVID-19 Community Economic Relief Fund was launched on March 13, 2020, to support human services organizations and the individuals and families they serve who are affected directly and indirectly by COVID-19.
The coronavirus is not just a health crisis. It’s an economic crisis, and the depth and magnitude of its spread is uncertain. At United Way of Central Indiana, we are committed to keeping you up-to-date on the unprecedented effort to help our most vulnerable populations during this crisis.
On May 12, the Task Force announced a third wave of grants to 56 organizations in Marion County focused on providing basic needs including shelter, food, utility assistance, childcare, transportation, and legal services (for eviction and unemployment insurance appeals), with a specific emphasis on organizations assisting communities of color, refugees and immigrants, and LGBTQ+ communities. C-CERF has delivered more than $15.8 million to 100 of our Central Indiana non-profit partners. Pathway Resource Center is one of the 56 organizations in receipt of funding.
