Harrison County has been awarded federal funds made available through West Virginia's State-Set-Aside Committee. Harrison County has been allocated $10,240 for Phase 39 and $42,000 for Phase ARPA-R to supplement Emergency Food and Shelter National Board programs. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by 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 Jewish Federation of North America; The Salvation Army; and United Way Worldwide. The Local Board is now charged with distributing funds to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
A Local Board, made up of representatives from the United Way of Harrison County, The Salvation Army, County government, American Red Cross, The West Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness, local clergy and non-affiliated volunteers will determine how the funds awarded to Harrison County, Jurisdiction 898800, are to be distributed among emergency food and shelter programs run by local service organizations in the area.
The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds that might become available under this phase of the program. Under terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary nonprofits or units of government. 2) be eligible to receive Federal Funds. 3) have an accounting system. 4) practice nondiscrimination. 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Agencies will be required to provide a DUNS number, a Federal Tax ID number, a valid phone number and email address for the contact person. Qualifying organizations are urged to apply at unitedwayhdc.org.
Harrison County has distributed these funds previously to organizations such as: The Lord’s Pantry, The Salvation Army, HOPE, Inc., Central WV Community Action, Bread of Life, and The Mustard Seed. These agencies have been responsible for providing meals, lodging, utility, and mortgage/rental assistance.
Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must submit an application. Applications can be found at unitedwayhdc.org.
