LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Agencies can start applying today for pandemic help from Metro Council.

The Metro Council COVID-19 Relief Fund was developed to help organizations deal with the spike in demand for services. Metro Council voted to approve the $2.7 million relief package in March.

Non-profit recipients or metro administered programs in Jefferson County that provide food or housing assistance programs are eligible to apply. Applications will be reviewed weekly by a five-person panel made up of representatives from the Mayor's office, Metro Council and the Metro United Way. The funds are made possible from donations from residents.
