Phase 40 Funding Award and Distribution
ND South Region

Local Board 655000 of the ND Emergency Food and Shelter Program HAS BEEN AWARDED FEDERAL FUNDS MADE AVAILABLE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY (DHS)/FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY UNDER THE EMERGENCY FOOD AND SHELTER NATIONAL BOARD PROGRAM.

Local Board 655000 has been selected to receive a Phase 40 grant totaling $37,127, which is to be distributed to emergency food and shelter programs in the ND South Region. The ND South Region includes Burleigh, Emmons, Grant, Kidder, McLean, Mercer, Morton, Oliver, Sheridan, and Sioux counties. Local Board 655000 is charged to distribute the funds, appropriated by Congress, to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.

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 the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Jewish Federations of North America; The Salvation Army; and, United Way Worldwide.

A Local Board made up of regional program representatives will determine how the funds awarded to the ND South Region are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. Local Board 655000 is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program. Local Board 655000 has identified the following priorities for Phase 40 funding: Served Meals, Mass Shelter, and Other Food. Eligible local agencies may apply for up to $7,500 (total) covering one or more of these priorities.

Under the terms of the grant, 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, and (5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs. Note: if an agency is a private voluntary nonprofit, the agency must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply. Local Board 655000 has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously to organizations such as AID, Inc., Community Cupboards of Underwood and Elgin, Mercer County Women’s Action and Resource Center, and Youthworks.

Agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Maggie Anderson, mdanderson@midco.net or call 701-224-0588 ext. 1 for an application. The deadline for applications to be received is April 21, 2023, at 5:00 PM CT.
