Service agencies in Danville and Pittsylvania County may apply for funds recently awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The money — $19,890 for Danville and $21,437 for Pittsylvania County — will go to help emergency food and shelter programs, according to a news release.

A local board will determine how the funds are awarded to service groups in the region.

To qualify, the agencies must:

  • be eligible to receive federal funds;
  • have an accounting system;
  • have an employer identification number number;
  • practice nondiscrimination;
  • have demonstrated the capability to deliver food and/or shelter programs; and 
  • if they are a private voluntary organization, have a voluntary board. 

Groups interested in applying may email efspdanvilleapp@gmail.com for an application. The deadline is Jan. 29.
