The Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program has granted $8,474 in federal funds to Logan County to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.
The request should include verification of non-profit status, the amount of funding requested and a description of how the funds will be used.
Under terms of the grant from the national board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, have a sound accounting system, practice nondiscrimination and have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs. Private voluntary organizations also must have an active board.
A local board meets at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 13, at the United Way of Logan County office, 130 S. Main St., to determine the distribution of funds. Representatives will include the Salvation Army, American Red Cross, United Way, Logan County Commissioners, Tri-County Community Action Agency and Lutheran Community Services.
Funds received in the past were used for rent, utility assistance and food.
