Grants to Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin nonprofit organizations to positively impact communities. Funding is intended to promote communities that seek to achieve impactful programming and improve the local quality of life. Program areas include affordable housing, economic development, workforce development, financial literacy, and education. Eligible applicants are located in a community in which there is a branch of Old National Bank. With the impact of COVID-19, priority is given to applicants who are providing services dedicated to community stabilization and recovery within the funding priorities.

Priority consideration is given to programs that serve low- to moderate-income populations/communities and small businesses. As part of the Fund's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, they also seek to support programs that focus specifically on enhancing opportunities for education, economic empowerment, mentorship, and inclusion for underrepresented people and communities. Examples of funding priorities with measurable outcome focus areas include:

Affordable Housing

  • Increase homeownership opportunities
  • Promote multi-family housing developments
  • Enhance neighborhood stabilization and vitality
    through home revitalization and repairs

Economic Development

  • Increase neighborhood revitalization initiatives
  • Strengthen community resource infrastructure
  • Increase business development and growth

Workforce Development
