Lilly Endowment announced nearly $25 million in grants to youth-serving organizations around Indiana to help deal with the impacts of COVID-19.
Indianapolis organizations that received grants include Central Indiana Youth for Christ, 100 Black Men of Indianapolis, Stop the Violence Indianapolis and Indiana Black Expo. There were 297 organizations that received grants around the state.
“Youth-serving organizations are vital to the well-being of Indiana’s youth, their families and their communities,” said Ted Maple, Lilly Endowment’s vice president for education. “We are inspired by ways in which the leaders of these organizations have responded to the tremendous challenges brought on by the pandemic.”
Grants will help the organizations cover expenses such as hand sanitizer, improved technology, space modification and other general expenses.
