More than 500 applications have been received seeking more than $8 million from the state’s Nonprofit Recovery Fund to help organizations recover from the coronavirus pandemic. Officials with the Iowa Economic Development Authority said the application period closed Monday, and applications are being reviewed. Awards should be announced soon, officials said. The fund, launched early last month with $10 million in CARES Act funds, was a joint initiative with IEDA and Volunteer Iowa to provide short-term relief to nonprofit organizations that  have seen reduced revenue or increased costs as a result of the pandemic. Eligible nonprofits may receive a grant of up to $25,000 based on income, expenses, outstanding obligations and other state and federal assistance received.
