The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) was created to
supplement and expand the work of local Social Services agencies,
both non-profit and governmental, in an effort to help people with
economic (not disaster-related) emergencies. The funds through the
Federal Emergency Management Agency help supplement food programs,
rent/mortgages, and utility assistance. Funding from this program
may provide one month's rent/mortgage and/or utility
assistance. A local board determines the services to be
provided in each jurisdiction when funding becomes available;
notification of funding is posted in the local county
Households must have a utility or rent payment past due, or due
within 5 days, or have an eviction notice. They must have exhausted
all other resources, including energy assistance, and the service
must guarantee at least 30 days of additional shelter or service.
Clients must have an income at or below 150% of the Federal
Poverty Guidelines established for their household size.
