Ninth District Opportunity in Dawson County has been awarded federal funds to supplement local emergency food and shelter programs, through The Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program. 

According to a press release, Ninth District Opportunity was selected for this funding through a national board chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and representatives from multiple national non-profit groups. 

The board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to expand food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country. 

Local funding will be distributed to non-profit groups and units of government that operate emergency food and shelter programs in the community. 

Agencies that wish to apply for this funding must submit a request to Brenda Dalin at Ninth District Opportunity Inc., P.O. Drawer L, Gainesville, GA 30501, by Feb. 12, 2021.
