“This grant will allow us to help keep our low-income neighbors safely housed despite the impact COVID-19 has had on our community,” HAND Executive Director Andrea Davis stated. “Losing income due to a public health emergency is devastating enough, but thanks to the generosity of Lilly Endowment, United Way of Central Indiana and other donors, these families won’t have to worry about losing their homes as a result.”
