Logan County has been chosen to receive $5,781 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.  Local agencies providing these services are encouraged to apply to receive all or a portion of those dollars. 

 

A local board consisting of representation from the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio, Logan County Commissioners, Lutheran Community Services, The Salvation Army, United Way of Logan County, and the local church community will meet on Wednesday August 2 at 9:00 a.m. at the United Way office at 130 South Main Street in Bellefontaine to determine distribution of the funds.  Funds received in the past have been used for rent, utility assistance, and food.

 

Under terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must:  1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, 2) have a sound accounting system, 3) practice nondiscrimination, 4) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs and 5) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have an active board.  Qualifying agencies are urged to apply.

 

Requests must be submitted in writing, by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday August 1, to United Way of Logan County, 130 South Main Street, Bellefontaine, Ohio, 43311 or emailed to dave@uwlogan.org.  This should include your verification of non-profit status (i.e. 501C3) the amount of funding requested and how the funds will be used.

 

The amount of $5,781 to be used in Logan County was made by a National Board that is chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from The Salvation Army; American Red Cross; United Jewish Communities; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; and United Way World Wide. The National 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.  This is Phase 34 of the program.
