The Emergency Food and Shelter National Board (EFS) Program provides supplemental funding to homeless services providers across the nation. EFS was first authorized by law in 1987. Eligible services include the provision of overnight shelter and served meals, assistance to food banks and pantries, one monthäó»s rental or mortgage assistance to prevent evictions, and one monthäó»s utility payments to prevent service cut-offs. Since its inception, the programäó»s recipient organizations have provided over 2 billion meals, 241 million nights of shelter, 4.3 million rent and mortgage payments, and 5.9 million utility payments. The program is administered by the EFS National Board, which is chaired by the Fed. Emergency Mngt. Agency(FEMA) of the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). The program was last authorized in 1994, and has been operating under authority provided by annual appropriations acts. In the past, its funding has generally increased during times of high unemployment and decreased as the unemployment rate declined. This report examines the administrative history of the program, the evolution of its award process, and the issues that Congress may consider as the EFS program approaches its fourth decade. In particular, the report highlights recent program delays in funding and, in general, how the EFS program and its emphasis on emergency services fit into the context of the fed. governmentäó»s approach to addressing homelessness. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
