Steamboat briefs: FEMA emergency food, shelter funds available

A national board, chaired by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency, has selected the Northern Rockies jurisdiction to receive $41,657 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in Routt, Eagle, Pitkin, Summit, Grand and Jackson counties. A local board will determine how funds are to be distributed among local agencies providing emergency food and/or shelter programs that have applied for funding. The local board is seeking applications from agencies that are a private, voluntary nonprofit group or unit of government; are eligible to receive federal funds; have an accounting system; are non-discriminatory; and have a voluntary board.

Agencies interested in applying for emergency food and shelter program funds can contact Michelle Kazmier at 970-262-3888, ext. 314, or Applications must be received by May 20 for consideration.
