Emergency food, shelter aid program has funds to distribute to agencies

Hernando County has been awarded more than $28,800 through the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.

A local board will determine how the funds are to be distributed, recommending agencies that provide emergency food and shelter programs. The board is made of representatives from the United Way of Hernando County, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, community action agencies, church organizations, Family Service America agencies, government agencies, homeless advocates and Jewish organizations.

Agencies interested in applying for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must be private voluntary nonprofits or units of government, have an accounting system, practice nondiscrimination, have demonstrated the capacity to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs and, if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board.

Agencies who qualify are encouraged to apply. The deadline to submit an application is 5 p.m. April 17.

Applications are available at the United Way of Hernando County, 4042 Commercial Way, Spring Hill. The office is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. For information, call 688-2026.
