The Austin/Travis & Williamson Counties Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) Board anticipates receiving federal funds made available through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency. The funds will be granted to private nonprofits or units of government who are eligible to receive federal funds and have the capacity to manage federal grants and deliver eligible services.

Funds must be used to supplement and extend food and shelter to serve permanent residents of and transients within Travis and Williamson Counties, Texas. Note that these funds can only be used to supplement existing programs and not to start new programs. The Local EFSP Board will determine how the funds are to be awarded.
