The deadline has been extended for agencies to submit applications under the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) for consideration to receive Supplemental Appropriations for Humanitarian Assistance funding.
These funds are to initially reimburse direct services, provided on or after January 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019, to southern border migrants released from the custody of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Originally, the application period was from Friday, August 23, 2019 through Friday, September 6, 2019, 11:59:59 p.m., EST. In order to allow agencies more time to gather information to submit applications for reimbursement of eligible expenditures, the National Board has extended the deadline for agencies to submit applications for funding to Monday, September 16, 2019, 11:59:59 p.m., EST.

This funding opportunity came to fruition in large part due to JFNA’s significant advocacy on Capitol Hill and we thank JFNA for their efforts.
