Northeast Indiana Works has received a $184,000 grant through the Youth Program Resilience Fund of Lilly Endowment Inc.
Northeast Indiana Works will use the grant for a variety of pandemic-related costs, including technology, site modifications, personal protective equipment and general operations.
“We are most appreciative for this grant from the Lilly Endowment,” said Northeast Indiana Works President Edmond O’Neal. “As our region, along with the nation, continues to face challenges brought by the pandemic, the money will help us ensure the safety of our staff and those utilizing the workforce system’s services.”
The grant to Northeast Indiana Works is one of 297 that Lilly Endowment has made through the Youth Program Resilience Fund to help youth-serving organizations across Indiana adapt their work to challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants from this fund are part of more than $170 million in grants Lilly Endowment has made to help organizations serve individuals and communities amid the pandemic.
