Good news in the form of relief funds for Hurricane Michael impacted areas


Additional Supplemental Disaster Relief Bill signed by the president. On June 6, people in the United States impacted by natural disaster received good news. President Trump signed a relief bill that would make $19.1 billion available to areas of the nation that suffered from catastrophic natural disasters over the past several years. Part of this money will help supply critical funding to Hurricane Michael impacted areas of the Panhandle. Local representatives are already pushing to meet with leaders of national agencies like the Department of Agriculture and Department of Housing and Urban Development among others in order to further the process. Exactly how much each county is getting is still yet to be determined, and the process will be slow; but it's a start and offers some hope to those who continue to recover.

Episcopal Relief and Development grants. Some other good news is that the first release of Episcopal Relief and Development relief grants have been received by the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast. Churches impacted by Hurricane Michael having been submitting grant applications for the past several weeks. Determinations for distributing the funds will be made in the coming days. These grant monies are to be used to build or strengthen important community ministries like Room 6 for LGBTQ+ teens, Back Pack Buddies for food insecure children, Supper at Grace which helps feed community members, an extended version of Vacation Bible School for local children, and more.
