Grundy County has been awarded federal funds under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Program (EFSP) for Phase 36.
Local Grundy County not-for-profit organizations who provide emergency food and shelter to Grundy County residents are able to apply for funding. Application submission is not a guarantee that funds will be awarded.
The Grundy County EFSP Board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
The Grundy County EFSP Board, comprised of representatives of many local entities, will determine how the funds awarded to Grundy County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The local board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds available under this phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant, local agencies chosen to receive funds must: be private voluntary non-profits or units of government; have an accounting system; practice non-discrimination; have demonstrated the capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs; and if they are a private voluntary organization, they must have a voluntary board.
Agencies interested in applying for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program, must submit an application via email at Info@UWGrundy.org by Noon July 15, 2019.
