Residents can apply for the Emergency Food and Shelter Federal Funds at 14564 River Road, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“We will give out all of the funds available to us until all the funds are exhausted,” Barbara Dorsey, administrative assistant for the community services office told the Herald-Guide.
