  • If you need data on how many miles and meals were delivered in the area you are interested in, you will need to contact Meals on Wheels to request that information, and to interview key supporters.
  • If you are researching grants for transitional families and the homeless, you will need to determinecurrent status of assistance programs, and what areas continue to be in need of support. Sheltering grants appear to be limited to one funding agency in each region.
