United Way of Dane County grants $1.5 million for COVID-19 relief

The United Way of Dane County will hand out over $1.5 million in grants to area organizations.

The money, from over 1,000 donors, will go to 90 organizations who applied for funding through the Dane County COVID-19 Emergency and Recovery Fund, according to a press release from the United Way.

The Fund was launched March 13 in collaboration with Boys & Girls Club of Dane County and Selfless Ambition. It ultimately raised $2 million. $425,000 was granted to local organizations in the first phase of the granting process.

The remaining $1.5 million has been awarded to these organizations to support Coronavirus-related food, housing and flexible funding needs.

“The needs that are arising from Coronavirus are unprecedented. Families are looking for resources right now to keep food on the table, pay their bills and stay in their homes. There is a delay for those eligible for unemployment or federal stimulus dollars. We aim to get dollars into the hands of people who need help right now,” adds United Way President & CEO Renee Moe.
