CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The Joe Burrow Foundation announced Tuesday morning it launched a new grant program to fund mental health and food insecurity projects.

The foundation’s new program, known as “Do Good” grants, will donate up to $50,000 toward proposals that come up with new, innovative and sustainable designs that will make a lasting impact on those in need.

While the Joe Burrow Foundation primarily focuses on mental health in children and food insecurity in the Greater Cincinnati area and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the foundation says they will also support projects with a “broader mission.”

“We’ve been blessed with Joe having the ability to be a professional football player and win the Heisman and we know that, and Joe would be the first to admit,” explained Jimmy Burrow. “We couldn’t have done it. Joe couldn’t have done it without the help of a lot of different people teammates coaches fans so we feel it’s our responsibility to give back.”

The first round of grant applications is being accepted now until April 30, and the second one will open up in the summer of 2023.
