Dodge County awarded
The Minnesota State Set-Aside Committee for the FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Program has recommended $2,800 be awarded to Dodge County. The money would be used to provide emergency food and shelter to people in need. Locally a board made up of the Salvation Army, Victim’s Services, Semcac, Human Services, and other interested organizations determines how the funds are to be distributed among emergency food and shelter programs in the area.
Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local governmental or private voluntary organizations chosen to receive funds must be non-profit, have a checking account and accounting system, practice non-discrimination, have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs and have a voluntary board if private, not-for-profit. Qualifying organizations may apply by April 10.
Anyone wishing more information about the Emergency Food and Shelter Program and how to apply for funding should contact Wendy Todd, Semcac, P.O. Box 549, Rushford, MN 55971-0549, (507) 864-7741.
