The Emergency Food & Shelter Funding Application Process is now open - Applications are due Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 5:00pm.
In Marion and Polk Counties, the Marion and Polk Local Board is charged with distributing funds appropriated by Congress, through FEMA, in order to expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
Under the terms of the grant, local agencies chosen to receive funds must be private voluntary non-profits or units of government; have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; have an accounting system; practice nondiscrimination; and if they are a voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. The Local Board, made up of representatives of non-profit agencies, community members, and local government representatives will make the allocations of funds once funds are available. United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley serves as the local administrator of these funds in Marion and Polk County.
