Taylor County will receive $15,546 in FEMA funds to supplement emergency shelter and food programs in the area.

Local groups may apply for Federal Emergency Management Agency funds. To apply, groups must be non-profit, have an accounting system and conduct audits annually, practice non-discrimination, have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food or shelter services and, if the group is a private voluntary organization, must have a voluntary board.

A local board comprised of local elected officials and representatives from the Taylor County chapter of the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Taylor County Ministerial Association and Our Lady of Perpetual Help will determine how funds are distributed.
