A local board composed of Winnebago County residents determines how the grant monies are distributed among emergency food and shelter programs in the county. Under terms of the grant from the National Board, organizations chosen to receive funds must: 1) be non-profit or a government agency, 2) have an accounting system and agencies requesting funds greater than $50,000 must conduct an annual audit, 3) practice non-discrimination, 4) charge no fee for services of the requested funded program, 5) private voluntary organizations must have voluntary boards, and 6) to the extent practical, involve homeless or formerly homeless individuals in the process of providing emergency food and shelter services.
UWYC has been designated to provide the administrative support for EFSP’s fund distribution through a local board of community volunteers which is responsible for making disbursement decisions among local emergency food and shelter programs that apply for funds. EFSP funds provide assistance over and above those services already provided by area agencies through their annual budgets.
The National Board is charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.
