Thanks to a $20 million grant program from the Rhode Island Foundation, nonprofits in the state will be able to fight hunger, homelessness, and housing instability, the Providence Journal reports.
Gov. Dan McKee announced the grants Tuesday, saying they're part of the state's $1.1 billion American Rescue Plan Act grant, which will also go toward behavioral health issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"These grant dollars will serve nonprofits that are in our communities across the state and are doing crucial work each and every day," McKee said in a press release.
Neil D.Steinberg, president and CEO of the foundation, says the grants, the largest in the 106-year-old organization's history, will "help nonprofits across Rhode Island the resources to help their communities recover from COVID-19's continuing impact on their daily lives."
