Klickitat County has been awarded Federal funds made available through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.

Klickitat County has been chosen to receive $9,867 to supplement food and shelter programs in the county.

The selection was made by a national board that is chaired by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from the Salvation Army, American Red Cross, the Jewish Federations of North America, Catholic Charities USA, National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA and United Way Worldwide. Local boards are charged with distributing funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.

A local board made up of representatives from Klickitat County, local churches, United Way, the American Red Cross and the homeless will determine how the funds awarded to Klickitat County are to be distributed among the food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The local board is responsible for recommending these funds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program.

Under the terms of the grant with the national board, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits with 501 (c) status or units of government; 2) be eligible to receive federal funds; 3) have an accounting system; 4) practice nondiscrimination; 5) have demonstrated the capacity to deliver emergency food and /or shelter programs; and 6) if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board of directors. Qualifying agencies are urged to apply.

Klickitat County has received Emergency Food and Shelter funds previously. Those funds have been allocated to local food banks and shelter programs.

Public and private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds may contact Leslie Naramore at Washington Gorge Action Programs office 509-493-2662 or 800-755-1192 for an application. The deadline for applications to be received is Tuesday, February 2, 2021 by 4:00 p.m.

Goldendale Energy Storage Project

Scoping for an Environmental Impact Statement

The Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites you to comment on the scope of an environmental review of the possible impacts of a proposed pumped storage energy project along the Columbia River near Goldendale, WA. Ecology is seeking comments on what should be included in the study, project alternatives and possible mitigation to reduce project impacts.

FFP Project 101, LLC are proposing to develop the Goldendale Energy Storage Project - an off-stream, closed-looped water storage system that will release water from an upper reservoir downhill to a lower reservoir to create energy.  The hydropower project would generate about 1,200 megawatts of electricity to be integrated into the existing power grid, using existing infrastructure from the nearby John Day dam. The project would use power already generated by wind and solar-energy projects for operations. Energy produced would serve markets in the Pacific Northwest.

Visit Ecology’s website at for the SEPA checklist and other project information. Due to COVID-19, documents related to this site will not be available at libraries and other locations. If you are unable to view information online at the Ecology website and have questions, please contact Meg Bommarito at or 425-681-6236.
