Additional Spending Period End Dates for Phases 39, ARPAR and 40

This notice is to advise that the National Board for the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) voted to grant additional spending period end dates beyond those offered initially when the Local Board Plans for Phases 39, ARPAR and 40 were made available to Local Boards.  Local Boards will be given the option to extend their jurisdictions’ spending periods to allow more time for Local Recipient Organizations to provide services to individuals and families seeking assistance.  If Local Boards have not submitted their Board Plans for Phases 39, ARPAR and 40, the additional spending period options will be available for selection when the Board Plans are processed for submission to the National Board via the EFSP website.  If Local Boards have submitted their plans, but wish to change their jurisdiction’s spending end date, they may select the Phase End Date Extension Request Form on the EFSP website, which may be found on the EFSP website after logging in with their user ID and password. It is important to note that the spending period selected by the Local Board will apply to each phase in which a jurisdiction is funded and all agencies in the jurisdiction.

 

The additional spending period end dates are below.

 

January 31, 2024           February 29, 2024         March 31, 2024

April 30, 2024                May 31, 2024                 June 30, 2024

An email will be sent to all Local Boards funded in Phases 39, ARPAR and 40 once the database has been updated to reflect the additional spending period options. Please continue to check Latest News on the EFSP website homepage for the most recent program information.
