On Friday, the Wabash County United Fund (WCUF) announced the distribution of $85,016 in COVID-19 relief funds to seven local nonprofit agencies, said executive director Steve Johnson.

In June, agencies were invited to request funding under the Basic and Essential Needs Grant for projects “that will serve the essential needs of Wabash County residents who have been impacted by COVID-19.”
