Local Boards will be allowed to request an extension to spend Phase 35 funds to the end of any month from October 31, 2017 through May 31, 2019. Please note if no end date extension is selected, the spending period for the jurisdiction automatically ends January 31, 2019.

EFSP Email Changes (as of June 29, 2016)
Effective July 1, 2016, the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) will have two new email addresses. These email addresses will help EFSP be more efficient in processing inquiries and submissions received in the office.
Beginning July 1, 2016, ALL documents submitted by State Set-Aside Committees, Local Boards and LROs via email to the EFSP office must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On July 1, 2016, the current EFSP email address will change slightly from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only questions concerning the program should be sent to this email address. Please note as of August 1, 2016, the current email address will not be active. Email sent to the address will not transmit successfully.

DUNS Numbers and Associated Information
DUNS numbers alone are not sufficient for EFSP purposes and neither Local Boards nor LROs can enter this information on the EFSP website. DUNS numbers and associated information are required for all Local Recipient Organizations (LROs) receiving funds under the EFSP. Funds cannot be released to LROs who have not provided this information. The DUNS information form and instructions are posted under the Local Board and LRO section of the EFSP website. This form (third page under the DUNS tab) must be completed accurately and either faxed to (703) 706-9677/9679 or scanned and emailed through the website at email@example.com. Simply providing the DUNS number alone does not fulfill the EFSP’s requirements; the form must be completed in its entirety.
Local Board and LRO Access to the Redesigned Website
Local Board members, including the Chair and contact, should have already received an email that provided your user ID and temporary password. SSAs and Local Boards should have received emails with the following:
