United Way Emergency Food and Shelter Program Set-aside Grant Award
Submitted By: Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Department: Grants Department  

Discuss and consider acceptance of a grant award for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Phase 31 made available through the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency awards federal funds to counties throughout the country for the Emergency Food and Shelter National Program. United Way of the Coastal Bend serves as the administrative organization for the local board and is requesting for Nueces County Human Services to submit an application for the Phase 31 funding.
On December 4, 2013, Commissioners Court accepted a grant award on behalf of the Human Services Department to offer services that fall under the program guidelines. Funds are provided to supplement and expand ongoing efforts to provide shelter, food and supportive services for the hungry, homeless and people in economic crisis. Nueces County was awarded $12,007 with no match required.

On April 7, 2014, the County was notified that there was an additional $1,960 available in set-aside funds specifically for our project. This makes the grant award increase to a total of $13,967. There is no cash match required for this grant.
