RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the acceptance of a grant award for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Phase 33 made available through the United Way of the Coastal Bend.
BACKGROUND
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 requested that the Nueces County Department of Social Services submit an application for Phase 33 funding.
DISCUSSION
On August 3, 2016, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of a grant application on behalf of the Social 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 $14,359 with no match required. The funds will be used by the Social Services Department and must be spent prior to March 31, 2017.
