2020 Crawford County CARES Act Nonprofits Relief Grant Awards Announced Facebook Ad

The Community Foundation for Crawford County recently received $400,000 in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding from the Crawford County Commissioners to distribute in the form of grants to local nonprofits negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Eligible nonprofits that provided sufficient documentation could then be reimbursed for COVID related loss of income, expenses incurred because of COVID, and/or normal operational expenses that occurred during the program’s required timeline.

“These grant applications were much more tedious than the Foundation’s traditionally have been, both for the nonprofits and the reviewers,” said Lisa Workman, Foundation President. “But it was time well spent and so worth it for these organizations that have lost so much during the pandemic, at no fault of their own.”

Local non-profit organizations that received grants from the CARES Act include the following:

  • Alpha Recovery 12-Step Program $37,845
  • American Red Cross $17,613
  • Bucyrus Backpack Program $1,812
  • Bucyrus Little Theatre $29,918
  • Bucyrus Preservation Society $9,639
  • Community Outreach Meal Program of St. Joseph Church $4,310
  • Crawford County Arts Council $10,447
  • Crawford County Community Concert Association $19,952
  • Crawford Works $35,091
  • Galion Community Theatre $21,417
  • Galion Historical Society $25,852
  • Humane Society Serving Crawford County  $16,794
  • YMCA of Bucyrus-Tiffin $169,310
