United Way of Scott County Indiana is pleased to announce that we are continuing our grants from the COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant, made possible through a partnership between Lilly Endowment, Inc. and Indiana United Ways, the state professional association of which United Way of Scott County Indiana is a member. These special funds will be used to boost the efforts on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

United Way of Scott County Indiana has been a key convener and coordinator of our community’s response to meet human needs for decades. Without a robust local safety net, those in need are bound to become even more dire. “Thanks to generous support from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., we are now more strongly positioned to help our community deal with the immediate and long term impact of Covid-19,” said Michelle Matern, Board Chair for United Way of Scott County, IN.

The COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant calls for United Ways that receive funding to leverage partnerships and relationships to better meet Covid-related essential and basic needs, and to address other Covid-19 critical issues as they emerge. Interested organizations should consult Nancy Riley, Executive Director at

 or call 812-752-2586 for guidance on funding intent and application instructions.
