Preble County was selected as qualifying jurisdictions to receive funding from the Emergency Food and Shelter Program’s National Board which is chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP), created in 1983, supplements and expands the work of local social service agencies which help people with economic emergencies. The original authorizing legislation (PL100-77) specifically calls for “sensitivity to the transition from temporary shelter to permanent homes and attention to the specialized needs of homeless individuals with mental and physical disabilities and illness and to facilitate access for homeless individuals to other sources of services and benefits.”
Special emphasis shall be on the identification of and assistance to the elderly, families with children, Native Americans, veterans, and mentally and physically disabled. EFSP funds must onlybe used to supplement rent/mortgage and utility assistance and feeding and sheltering efforts. This is the statement of what FEMA funds.
