Each year, grants are awarded to local programs, initiatives, schools and scholarships that specifically benefit Cumberland County youth.
Thank you to all applicants who submitted a grant proposal to Youth Growth Stock Trust last year.
THE EMERGENCY FOOD & SHELTER PROGRAM (EFSP) GRANT
Phase 40 WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD: On February 23, 2023
This grant is for local recipient organizations to use EFSP funds for mass shelter, mass feeding, food distribution through food pantries, food banks and food vouchers, pass due utility payments to prevent service disconnections, past due rent/mortgage assistance to prevent evictions and to assist people that are leaving shelters with establishing stable living conditions.

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program was established on March 24, 1983, with the signing of the "Jobs Stimulus Bill", Public Law 98-8. That legislation created a National Board, chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency "FEMA" that consisted of representatives of the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities USA, The Jewish Federations of North America, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, the Salvation Army and United Way Worldwide.
