A community action program is looking to the city of Pittsburg to apply for funding.
The SEK-CAP emergency shelter has written a grant, which it hopes will result in funding for the homeless family shelter.
The grant will be given to the state in order to get the money to the city.
SEK-CAP is asking for $50,000 which will go towards running the shelter.
Other agencies looking at funding include Paw-Prints on the Heartland and the Joplin Regional Prosperity Initiative.
