Knox County to receive emergency funds

Officials with Generations say Knox County will soon be awarded federal Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) funds through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Knox County has been recommended to receive an estimated $13,311 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.

The selection is made by a national board that is chaired and awarded through 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 Salvation Army, United Jewish Communities and United Way of America. 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.

Nonprofit organizations or public agencies interested in applying for Phase 38 Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Brenda Hancock with Generations at 812-888-5146 or bhancock@vinu.edu for an application. The deadline for applications to be received is Jan. 8.
