$3.6 Million in FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Programs Funding for Mississippi
U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), who serves on the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, today provided information regarding the award of $3.6 million in FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter Program funding for Mississippi. The funding is being provided through FY2019 appropriations, as well as funds provided in the CARES Act, which became law in late March to address the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds are intended to help nonprofit organizations throughout Mississippi address hunger and homelessness needs.
