Columbia Accepting Service Funding Requests
The Division of Human Services is accepting applications from agencies that provide emergency shelter, transitional housing, food, and other basic needs.
This year's funding supports 86 different programs in Boone County. "Without the funding from the city, for staff and everything else that they provide, we just couldn't do it," said Cindy Mustard, Director of Voluntary Action Center. The Voluntary Action Center is receiving funding for its Essential Transportation and Family Assistance and Emergency Services programs.
The division will take applications throughout the month of July. The deadline for submitting is July 30, 2010 at 5:00 p.m.
