The Salvation Army of Genesee County now knows how it will appropriate a $2,800 grant from FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security.
Major Patricia Kurtz says that, through the Salvation Army and the Ministry of Concern, the money will go to help local residents with their rent and utility payments.
The grant was given to help emergency food and shelter services around the country and the Board decided in an appropriation meeting to dedicate the funding to high-needs families locally.
Private and public voluntary agencies were eligible to apply for the funds under the original grant agreement.
