Emergency Food & Shelter Program (EFSP)

United Way of Marathon County serves as the Secretariat for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) for Marathon County. The Emergency Food and Shelter Program provides federal funding through the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help expand the capacity of food, shelter, and rent/utilities assistance programs in high-need areas around the country. These funds are used to support people facing economic emergencies that contribute to hunger and the loss of housing by supporting the expansion of existing programs, thereby supporting more people than can be served without the EFSP funding.
