Food and Shelter Program Funds
By Angela Hatton
Washington, D. C. – Kentucky will receive nearly one and a half million dollars from a branch of Federal Emergency Management Agency. Funds from the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) will be distributed to counties and used to address basic food and housing needs of residents affected by unemployment and poverty. Social support services within individual counties will distribute the funds to those most in need. In Western Kentucky, McCracken County will receive the greatest allotment, nearly twenty-thousand dollars. Trigg County which has Western Kentucky's highest unemployment rate, will receive about fifty-five hundred dollars.
