Emergency Food & Shelter Program
Delaware County Emergency Food and Shelter Board
The Delaware County Emergency Food and Shelter Board, representing local service agencies, is seeking proposals for emergency food and shelter services. Appropriate non-profit agencies are requested to submit proposals (applications) by 4:30pm, Friday, May 29, 2020, to United Way of Delaware County via email to email@example.com or at P.O. Box 319, Delaware, OH 43015.
The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) funds come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and are distributed to counties statewide. The program is administered nationally by the United Way. Delaware County has been awarded funds under Phase 37 and Phase "Cares" of the EFSP.
Proposals should address priorities such as homelessness, re-housing, homelessness prevention assistance and food insecurity.
Please note that a separate application must be completed for each phase/group of funding. If applying for both, there is an application for Phase 37 and one for Phase "Cares". Agencies must also acquire a DUNS number before applying. Agencies that receive between $50,000 to $99,999 must conduct an annual accountant's review or an independent audit if receiving greater than $100,000.
Questions may be directed to: Brandon Feller, United Way of Delaware County. Applications and grant guidelines may be downloaded below:
