Jackson County awarded federal funds through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program

Jackson County has been chosen to receive $22,395.00 to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.
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 the American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U.S.A.; The Salvation Army; The Jewish Federations of North America; The Salvation Army; and the United Way Worldwide. The Local Board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
A Local Board made up of Tim Guffey, Jackson County Commission; Robert Shelton, Scottsboro Mayor; Norma Harvey, Community Action Agency; Dale Chapman, Jackson County Department of Human Resources; Tracy Ridgeway, Salvation Army; Shirley Crutcher, Jackson County Chapter of the American Red Cross; James Woodin, Upper Sand Mountain Parish; Beverly Waldrop, CASA/REACH; Charles Heath, Jackson County United Givers Fund; Jeff Arnold, Larry Lockard, Donna Carlin; Carrie Lea, Gary Speers; Marilyn Stevens, Michael Counts; and Ken Looney will determine how the funds awarded to Jackson County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant from the National Board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of government, 2) be eligible to receive federal funds, 3) have an accounting system, 4) practice nondiscrimination, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are encouraged to apply.
Jackson County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously with the Community Action Agency, Upper Sand Mountain Parish, Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound and Jacob’s Well participating.
Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Ken Looney, Local Board Chair, at (256) 599-1666 or Ellie Smith, Local Board Contact, at (256) 259-5611 for an application.
