U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown has announced funding for emergency food and shelter programs that will provide more than $100,000 to area counties.

Agencies throughout the state that provide assistance with food, rent, and utility payments will receive a share of $4,456,837 in federal funding, to be distributed by Federal Emergency Management Agency’s  Emergency Food and Shelter Program grant program.
 
“With our economy still on the mend and with paychecks failing to keep pace with the rising cost of living, many Ohio families are still struggling to balance mortgage payments with grocery and utility bills,” Brown said in a statement. “That’s why this funding is so important. The Emergency Food and Shelter Program is critical to helping Ohio families gain stability during this economic recovery.”
 
This funding will support social service agencies in cities and counties throughout Ohio to help feed and shelter the state’s hungry and homeless. EFSP funds are used to supplement food, shelter, rent, mortgage, and utility assistance programs for people with non-disaster-related emergencies.
 
The following area counties received funding:

Erie County: $40,795

Huron County: $35,701

Ottawa County: $27,771

 Great more entitlement. Since a majority of those under the entitlement umbrella live in Sandusky the money will be split among the 20,000 residents. Two bucks each. What a great deal. Maybe if they spread the money around to the outlying area it can work out to be $1.50 per person. Again, Wow!

Senator Brown is a great man.  Can you say "Buy some votes".

Funny how the counties with the two highest unemployment rates are the ones getting the least.  More money for sandusky's baby mama's and hoodrats. Maybe they can use the money to buy more guns.

Way to show compassion there people. TRY to keep in mind that not everybody getting aid at this time is doing it because they WANT to.  Sometimes you have to do things you aren`t very proud of just to feed you family.  Maybe you would prefer the state use the money for another "study" and let your neighbors go cold and hungry until they HAVE to resort to stealing or robbing places to feed their family.

I really, really enjoyed this. The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I had imagined. The way you have “blended” (hehe) it all together makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as any Pixar short. Probably better.
