Schuyler will receive federal grant award

SCHUYLER COUNTY--The Schuyler County Emergency Food and Shelter Board has been awarded federal funds made available through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.
Schuyler County has been chosen to receive $2,800 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county through the State Set Aside Award.
The selection was made by a national board chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA; The Jewish Federation of North America; the Salvation Army; and United Way Worldwide. The local 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 meeting will be held Thursday, Sept. 7 at 8 a.m. at 112 Sixth St., Watkins Glen. This is Mann Parish House of St. James Episcopal Church. Any person interested in serving on the Emergency Food and Shelter Board is welcome to attend. The local board will determine how the funds awarded to Schuyler County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program.
