Madison County has been chosen to receive $31,785 to supplement food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the county.
The selection was made by a national board chaired by the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency. The funding was appropriated by Congress. A local board will determine which agencies will receive the funds and any additional funds made available under the current phases of the program.
Local agencies chosen to receive funds must:
• be private voluntary non-profit or units of government;
• be eligible to receive federal funds; • have an accounting system;
• practice nondiscrimination;
• have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and
• have a voluntary board, if they are a private voluntary organization.
Agencies must be able to accept electronic funds transfers and be able to submit electronic reports including spreadsheets.
Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Meredith Setterfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or (937) 324-5551 to receive an application. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. May 4, 2023.
