FEMA Emergency Food/Shelter Administrative Agencies

Organizations that are responsible for administering the FEMA Emergency Food and Shelter (EFS) Program that was created by Congress to help meet the needs of hungry and homeless people throughout the U.S. and its territories by allocating funds for the provision of food and shelter. The program is governed by a National Board composed of representatives of the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities, USA; Council of Jewish Federations; The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Salvation Army; and United Way of America. The Board is chaired by a representative of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and United Way of America serves as the program's secretariat. The National Board awards funds to jurisdictions using a formula involving population, poverty, and unemployment data. Jurisdictions that do not qualify under the formula and thus do not receive funding directly from the National Board may receive funds through a state set aside process, and jurisdictions that do qualify may receive additional funding the same way.
