JASPER — The Dubois County Community Foundation has received a $250,000 COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant, made possible through a partnership between Lilly Endowment Inc. and Indiana United Ways.

“The Community Foundation continues to keep a pulse on our community’s most pressing needs during this pandemic and has deployed over $100,000 to support emergency pandemic relief and nonprofit sustainability in Dubois County," said Andrea Tooley, board president of the foundation. "Thanks to generous support from the Lilly Endowment Inc., we are now more strongly positioned to help our community’s nonprofits deal with the immediate impacts of COVID-19."
