This fall, United Way of the Lewis and Clark Area has received $16,203 in FEMA funding to cover the costs of Emergency Food and Shelter in Jefferson, Broadwater and Lewis and Clark counties. This is over $2,000 more than United Way received in 2016.
The funding will be distributed to applicants who are providing critical care to shelter and feed our neighbors who need help most this year. A committee of local representatives will determine where the grant monies are needed most after reviewing applications (which are due by November 25, 2017). To apply, a one page letter should be submitted to the United Way office detailing the need for funding and how it will be used.
We are proud to work with our partners to ensure all our neighbors have a safe place to sleep and full bellies this holiday season! Thank you for your generous support and compassion as we care for those in our community who need it most this holiday season.
Note: This grant does not contribute to United Way’s annual fundraising goal of $775,000 to advance health, education and financial stability in the tri-county area.
