Nonprofits can apply for EFSP funding
A local board will determine how the funds are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The board will recommend which agencies will receive funds.

Funds will be awarded for the following purposes: Food, in the form of served meals or groceries; lodging in a mass shelter or hotel; one month's rent or mortgage payment; or one month's utility bill.
To apply, contact Kelli Kanemoto, EFSP's local board chairwoman, at Foothills United Way, 303-444-4013 or email@example.com. The deadline for applications is 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 17.
