Press Release

The Emergency Food and Shelter National Board has notified Ashland County that it will not be the recipient of funds through the Emergency Food and Shelter Program. Our jurisdiction did not qualify this year to receive a direct allocation under funding made available to the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program (EFSP) under Public Law 112-10 for Phase 32. Ashland County will be receiving $-0- from these funds. Ashland County has been recommended to receive $6,876 of the Phase 33 State-Set-Aside (SSA) funds, by the State-Set-Aside Committee of the Emergency Food and Shelter Program.

The local EFSP committee will have a Public Hearing at 10:30a.m. on August 24, 2016, in the County Commissioners meeting room at 110 Cottage Street, Ashland, Ohio, for qualified entities that have questions regarding the program. There will be an additional Public Hearing on August 30, 2016 at 3:30p.m. in the County Commissioners meeting room. Applications will be accepted until 3:30 p.m. on September 1, 2016 from qualified entities with a proven track record of delivering assistance.

A Local Board made up of various agency representatives will determine how the funds awarded to Ashland 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 non-discrimination, 5) have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply.

Ashland County has distributed Emergency Food and Shelter funding previously to Associated Charities, Lutheran Social Services, Pump House Ministries, Salvation Army, ACCESS Program and Garber Brethren Church Hunger Center. These agencies were responsible for providing meals and lodging for qualified county residents.

Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds must contact the Ashland County Commissioners office for an application. The Local EFSP Board will meet on September 6, 2016 at 10:30 a.m. in the County Commissioners meeting room to distribute local funding
