052120 br0277CHICAGO – In an effort to help communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, State Senator Emil Jones, III (D-Chicago) announced organizations that provide support services and resources should apply for a percentage of the $7.1 million worth of newly approved grants from the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority.

“No community has suffered more impact from COVID-19 than underprivileged communities,” Jones said. “I urge local community organizations to apply for the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Program to help disproportionate communities recover.”

The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Program provides funding to community-based agencies in areas disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Funds must be used for rent or utilities assistance, supportive services, or distribution of food to local residents.
