Funding Opportunities with United Way

Please see the information below about available grant funds and other information regarding funding from United Way.

Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) Phase 34 Funding Now Available

Pasco County has been awarded Federal funds made available through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) / Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program.

Pasco County has been chosen to receive funding to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county. The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities, USA; National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; The Jewish Federations of North America, The Salvation Army; and, United Way Worldwide. The Local Board was charged to distribute funds appropriated by Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in high-need areas around the country.

A Local Board, representing local government entities, provider agencies, and funding bodies will determine how the funds awarded to Pasco County are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by local service agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds made available under this phase of the program.

Qualified local 501 (c) 3 non-profit human, health, and service agencies are invited to submit applications for funding. Funds are to be used for programs in Pasco County which will improve the lives of Pasco residents.

Under the terms of the grant from the EFSP National Board and implemented locally, local government or private organizations chosen to receive funds must:

*Be non-profit serving the community for at least one (1) year;

*Be eligible to receive Federal funds;

*Have an accounting system in place and conduct an annual audit;

*Practice non-discrimination in delivery of services;

*Demonstrate collaboration and avoid duplication of services;

*Demonstrate capability to deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and

*Have a voluntary board of directors for private organizations.

2016 Outside Agency Funding Allocations

As part of Pasco County’s commitment to residents, $250,000 was set aside in the 2016 budget cycle for United Way of Pasco to distribute, through a competitive grant process, to non-county agencies that provide much-needed human services to residents. Part of the funding amount comes from Pasco Utilities and the Round-Up program. A committee of community volunteers reviewed grant applications and made award determinations.
