Regionally Speaking, Monday, August 23, 2021

United Way of NWI

Today:  David Nicole with Lake Area United Way and Kim Olesker with United Way of Porter County are on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the merger of the two local United Way organizations to become the United Way of Northwest Indiana.  The merger is projected to be completed late this fall.  We also revisit our recent conversation with Tom Brown with the Lake County Community Economic Development Department about the funds available to help renters avoid eviction.  Lake County received $13 million in federal funds for covering rent, utilities and internet service for eligible residents.  

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
