Food, shelter programs get $43,000 Local board will allocate U.S. grant

December 27, 1992

More than $43,000 in federal money will go to Harford County emergency food and shelter programs in 1993.

The $43,786 grant comes from the Federal Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program, said Harford Councilwoman Joanne S. Parrott, co-chair of the board's county chapter.

"There are many groups throughout Harford County who are committed to providing shelter, food and other support services to the county's needy," she said.

The local board will decide how to allocate the money among the programs.

Last year's grant to Harford County was $34,356, Mrs. Parrott said.

"That means that in 1993 more needy women, men, children and families will benefit through the efforts of groups who provide food and groceries from pantries, prepared meals, lodging, and utility and rental assistance," she said.

To qualify for the federal money, organizations must be nonprofit, have an accounting system that includes an annual audit, not discriminate and have demonstrated the ability to deliver emergency food or shelter.

Applications for grant money must be completed by 4 p.m. Jan. 6.
