INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana will receive $36,500 from the federal government in hopes of curbing the spread of white-nose syndrome, a fungus that can be fatal to many bats.
Indiana is one of 30 states receiving a total of nearly $1.3 million in grants to combat the disease. Eight Midwestern states, including Indiana, will split $280,000.
The money will be administered through the Department of Natural Resources to support research on the disease, to detect and respond to it, and to monitor bat populations.
The grants are awarded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Officials say white-nose syndrome has spread from one state in 2007 to 25 states and five Canadian provinces this year.
