It’s an unexpected boost to a local charity. Deschutes County is awarded federal funds to help organizations that provide emergency services, food and assistance.  United Way spokesperson Jane Wendell says it's great news, considering they were not expecting any money this year: “We got $109,977 in federal fund through the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in Deschutes County." Wendell says they have put the call out to all agencies to apply for some of the funds. A board made up of local charities and local government representatives will determine how the funds will be distributed, then the money will actually come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to those chosen.
