The COVID-19 crisis is creating additional health, economic and social impacts around Illinois. Dedicated health and human service organizations are working to meet those evolving needs. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) created the $1.5 million COVID-19 Community Collaboration Fund to help the helpers. These 75 Illinois organizations are receiving $20,000 grants to further their work in the areas of access to health care, hunger and shelter.
