From staff reports

POSTED: March 1, 2008 5:00 a.m.

Ninth District Opportunity Inc. has been awarded $72,847 in federal funds under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.

The funds are to be distributed locally to help provide food and housing for individuals and families.

Hall County previously has received these funds through Ninth District Opportunity and other local agencies.

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program began in 1983 with a $50 million federal appropriation.

The program was created by Congress to help meet the needs of hungry and homeless people throughout the United States and its territories by allocating federal funds for the provision of food and shelter.

Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must submit a request to Brenda Dalin, Ninth District Opportunity Inc.; P.O. Drawer L; Gainesville, GA 30501. The deadline to submit a request is March 21.
