Emergency Food and Shelter program 

 

About the National Emergency Food and Shelter Program

 

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) was created on March 24, 1983, with the signing of the “Jobs Stimulus Bill,” Public Law 98-8. The EFSP aims to supplement and expand the work of local social service agencies, both nonprofit and governmental, to help people with economic emergencies (not disaster-related emergencies [i.e., fires of any kind, floods, tornadoes, etc.]). The EFSP funding is open to all organizations helping hungry and homeless people. EFSP funds must be used to supplement feeding, sheltering (including transitional sheltering), and rent/mortgage and utility assistance efforts only.
