The Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program has granted $8,110 in federal funds to Logan County to help supplement local emergency food and shelter programs.
The written request should include a verification of nonprofit status, the amount of funding requested and 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, have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs
and if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have an active board.
Funds received in the past were used for rent, utility assistance and food.
A local board consisting of representatives of the American Red Cross, United Way of Logan County, Logan County Commissioners, Tri-County Community Action Agency, Lutheran Community Services and others will meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at the United Way office to determine distribution of the funds.
