The United Way of Central Indiana made its final round of COVID-19 related relief grants for Marion County.  

In this round, $3.9 million will go to 48 community organizations to assist in a variety of needs including mental health and food assistance.  These grants are also focused directly on organizations that serve the Black community in Marion County.

Ann Murtlow, president and CEO of United Way said in a statement that more is still needed.

“We commend the direct service organizations and their employees and volunteers who we've had the honor of supporting through C-CERF and the many others who do good work but who we were unable to help with our substantial but still limited resources,” Murtlow said. 

The Central Indiana COVID-19 Relief Fund or C-CERF has been able to distribute more than $21 million to 186 organizations since it started in March. 

A round of grants for surrounding counties is still expected in August.
