Emergency Food and Shelter Program Grant Awards

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) provides federal funds to community organizations to help people in times of crisis and to provide prevention services that help people avoid crisis.  United Way of Greater New Haven administers the program for New Haven County.

EFSP funds, which are distributed through a competitive application process, are used to provide served meals or emergency groceries, lodging in shelters or hotels, and emergency rent and mortgage assistance, foreclosure prevention and utility assistance.
