01292020CM0698DOLTON – State Senator Napoleon Harris (D-Harvey) urges community-based organizations that provide support services and resources to apply for a percentage of the $7.1 million worth of newly approved grants from the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority.

“A strong support system for communities is what’s needed the most on this road to recovery,” Harris said. “While every community has been impacted by the negative effect of COVID-19, disproportionate communities had unequal resources even before this and that’s why this program is so essential for their recovery.”

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.
