FEMA via the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) Money is designated to local non-profit organizations that help people in danger of losing their homes. The federal government designates the money nationwide based on unemployment and poverty statistics. Nationwide the agency will distribute $140 million this year. Since its inception in 1984 this program has contributed more than $2.10 billion to supplement and expand ongoing efforts to provide shelter, food and supportive services for homeless and hungry individuals. Criteria for awards were based on the most current 12-month national unemployment rates; the total number of unemployed within a jurisdiction; total people living below the poverty level; and the total population of that jurisdiction.
