Program accomplishments...

During Phase 22 of the EFS Program it is estimated that over 11,000 social service agencies (both nonprofit and governmental) in more than 2,500 jurisdictions will distribute nearly $153 million. The appropriation is estimated to result in more than 45 million additional meals and more than 4 million additional nights of shelter, and payout of approximately 302,000 rent/mortgage and utility bills to keep people in their homes, as well as supplies and minimal repairs for shelters. Additionally, program staff will conduct more than 10 training sessions across the country in which nearly 700 program participants will review procedures and exchange information with program staff. In addition, the National Board funded a special project in which the National Coalition of Homeless Veterans was provided $250,000 to support 51 Stand Downs for homeless veterans throughout the nation.
