EMERGENCY FOOD AND SHELTER PROGRAM – WOOD COUNTY
PHASE 40 FY2022
Wood County has been allocated Emergency Food & Shelter funds in the amount of $31,853.00 from the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Any nonprofit, faith-based or local government agency that provides food and shelter services may apply for funds. Current or former EFSP participation is not required for participation. Interested agencies must apply to the Local Board in the jurisdiction where they are providing services (WoodCounty only).
All agencies applying for EFSP funds must provide their UEI (Unique Entity Identifier number) and FEIN in their applications. Failure to provide these numbers will prevent or delay the release of funds to agencies, if they are awarded by the Local Board
EFSP funds must be used to supplement food and shelter services and may not be used as seed money for new programs. The key responsibility of participating organizations is to provide assistance within the intent of the program. Agencies may receive funds to provide food, shelter and supportive services, including, but not limited to:
* Food services, such as congregate meals or groceries;
* Lodging in a mass shelter, or in a hotel/motel or other off-site shelter facility;
* Rent or mortgage assistance to prevent eviction or foreclosure;
