INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis is providing details on a grant program for nonprofits to get personal protective equipment (PPE).

The $2 million program uses money from the CARES Act and will award grants in amounts between $200 and $5,000.

Indianapolis nonprofit organizations can use the money for reimbursement of purchases of personal PPE, disinfectant products and capital improvements needed to maintain safety measures for social distancing.

A nonprofit would need to meet the following:

  • Nonprofit must be located in Marion County
  • Nonprofit must have achieved a 501(c)(3) status from the state of Indiana prior to February 15, 2020
  • Nonprofit must have purchased PPE and other health and safety items as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and submit all receipts to receive a grant
  • Purchases must have occurred between March 16 and August 15, 2020

Nonprofits can apply for the grants through Aug. 15. Each 501(c)(3) is limited to one application and grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
