Cape County eligible for Emergency Food and Shelter funds

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) announced that Cape Girardeau County is eligible to receive federal funding in order to provide support to those in need of place to live and food to eat.

Local agencies who meet general requirements for the federal grant, such as practicing accepted accounting principles and demonstrating the ability to deliver food and/or shelter programs, have been encouraged by the EFSP to apply.

Last year Cape Girardeau County received a total of $38,126 to provide support, and is once again eligible to receive money.

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program was created in 1983 by Congress in order to assist those without the means to provide themselves with a place to live and/or food. All Federal Funds appropriated by the organization are used to solve this problem in the U.S.
