County awarded funding for emergency food, shelter programs

Crenshaw County has been chosen to receive $4,244 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.

The local OCAP board will determine how the funds awarded to Crenshaw County are to be distributed among the EF&S programs run by local service agencies in the area.

The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this program.

Under the terms of the grant, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: be private voluntary non-profits or units of government; be eligible to receive federal funds; have an accounting system; practice nondiscrimination; have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and if they are private voluntary organizations, have a voluntary board.

Qualifying agencies are urged to apply.

They must apply in writing to Lori Barefield, 1727 Lee St., Rutledge, AL 36071.

Deadline to submit letters is Feb. 19, 2021.
