To help those whose lives have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, State Farm is offering a $2 million grant to the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), a nonprofit with which the insurer has a decades-long partnership.
The grant will support LISC programs aimed at helping underserved communities. Said programs will “fuel financial stability for families, strong businesses, affordable housing, and better health and safety,” a release said, ultimately giving a boost to their respective local economies. Specifically, the grant will be used to fund programs in 12 metro areas: Atlanta, Bay Area, Central Illinois (i.e., Bloomington-Normal, Peoria, Springfield), Chicago, Houston, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Puget Sound.
