Sixteen grants were awarded in April to sixteen different local projects that will benefit members of the Blackford County community. These sixteen awards total $94,440 to eleven organizations that provide services for local youth, for families in need of food or medical assistance, and for projects that enrich the quality of life in the county. The specific awards given provide many opportunities for youth and several that support the health and well-being of community residents.

The next round of grants will be awarded in late June. Applications are available now and are due May 30 at the Foundation office.
