Emery County Has Been Awarded Federal Funds Under The Emergency Food And Shelter National Board Program.
Emery County has been chosen to receive $2,461.00 to supplement
emergency food and shelter programs in the county. The selection was
made by a National Board that is chaired by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) and consists of representatives from the
Salvation Army, American Red Cross, Council of Jewish Federations,
Catholic Charities, USA, National Council of Churches of Christ in the
U.S.A. and United Way of America, which will provide the
administrative staff and function as fiscal agent. The Board was
charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand
the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around
the country. A local board made up of local representatives will
determine how the funds awarded to Emery County are to be distributed
among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local services
organizations in the area. The local board is responsible for
recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds
available under this phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local
governmental or private voluntary organizations chosen to receive
1. be a non-profit

participating. The agency was responsible for providing emergency food
supplies to the needy in Emery County.

Food and Shelter Board at 375 South Carbon Ave., Price, Utah may
