Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider acceptance of a set-aside grant award for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Phase 33 made available through the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
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 31, 2016, Commissioners Court accepted a grant award on behalf of the Department of Social Services 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.

On October 13, 2016, the County was notified that there was an additional $10,000 available in set-aside funds specifically for our project. This makes the grant award increase to a total of $24,359. There is no cash match required for this grant.
