Indiana groups to receive CARES grant funding

INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Nonprofits providing public humanities programming in Indiana will be getting over $500,000 to help with funding relief from the COVID-19 pandemic. CARES Grants have been awarded by Indiana Humanities to 74 Indiana organizations, with awards ranging from $1,000 to $15,000. 

Indiana Humanities says grant requests exceeded $1.3 million, and 186 applicants reported $11.7 million in total losses to date, with projected losses of nearly $45 million through September 30.

“We are pleased to have awarded grants to groups large and small, carrying out a variety of programming, in each congressional district and in 48 of our 92 counties,” said Doran Moreland, Indiana Humanities board chair. “Because of the immense need, we had to turn down many organizations that are doing good work, including some of our close partners. The grant committees put great care into the review, weighing a number of factors such as public humanities focus, need, audiences served, and geography.”

The grants do require a match and are expected to be distributed in June.
