$19 million has gone to Regional One and $9 million to other hospitals. $3 million went to the Mid-South Food Bank to provide nine million meals. The Shelby County Humane Society received $460,000 to support a new low-cost clinic.

Other funds went to property tax relief for seniors and transitional housing for the homeless.
