Emergency Food & Shelter Assistance
Targeting Special Emergency Needs
How It Works
- United Way of Sullivan County administers the local Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.
- A local Emergency Food and Shelter Board helps distribute these funds to agencies, churches, and synagogues that provide assistance to those in need.
- This funding is used to target special emergency needs. (Emergency needs refer to economic, not disaster related emergencies.)
- One time FEMA funding can supplement food, shelter, (including transitional shelter), rent and utility assistance in ways that can really make a difference.
