The program is governed by a National Board composed of representatives of the American Red CrossCatholic Charities, USAThe Jewish Federations of North AmericaNational Council of the Churches of Christ in the USAThe Salvation Army; and United Way Worldwide. The Board is chaired by a representative of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
