On Oct. 19, the Bloomington City Council voted unanimously in favor of a $100,000 grant program to assist people who have been affected by Indiana’s abortion ban.
Administered by the Community and Family Resources Department, the program will support local organizations in their response to the abortion ban, according to a city council memo.
The funding for the grant program comes from the city council’s General Fund, according to the memo. Community and Family Resources plan to award the money by Dec. 3, 2022.
Currently, Indiana’s abortion ban is on hold after a Monroe County judge temporarily blocked SB-1 as litigation continues.
