Funding Opportunties 

NEW The IRS is issuing Economic Impact Payments to every eligible American.

  • The IRS is issuing Economic Impact Payments to every eligible American. We need your help to reach individuals who do not normally file because they do not have enough income that requires them to file. This includes the homeless, unbanked, certain seniors, and some limited English-proficient individuals who will need to provide information to the IRS to get their Economic Impact Payment. If possible, those individuals can use the IRS free online tool to sign up to get an Economic Impact Payment:
  • Some individuals may not have internet capability, a bank account, or a permanent address. These citizens may need additional assistance claiming their Economic Impact Payment.  Call 211 for assistance.
  • Payments are Automatic for Many Federal Beneficiaries – SSA, SSI, RRB, and VA: For those receiving Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans Affairs benefits who didn’t file a tax return in the last two years, no action is needed; they will automatically receive their $1,200 payment.

The Emergency Food and Shelter Program [] (EFSP) National Board—chaired by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) with representatives from a wide range of organizations including the American Red Cross, Catholic Charities, USA, and United Way Worldwide—has awarded $320 million of CARES Act and annually appropriated funding to qualifying local jurisdictions (counties and cities) across the country to support COVID-19 impacted communities through the provision of food, shelter and supportive services.
