Emergency Food and Shelter Program

The Tehama Community Action Agency has been selected by the federal government to administer the FEMA funds granted to Tehama County.  These funds are dispersed to agencies in our community that provide emergency food and housing.  The Tehama Community Action Agency ensures all FEMA funding is used to provide emergency safety-net services in Tehama County


Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP) 2016/2017 funding for Phase 33 has been released for Tehama County

Qualifying community organizations are urged to apply.  For information  regarding qualifications for funding and due dates please see the Press Release.

Press Release

There is one major change to the application process.  This year we are asking partners to submit one application for each funding category.  If you provide both food and shelter programs with EFSP funding then you will be required to submit two applications.  If you are only applying for one category you will need to submit one application.  Applications must be submitted no later than June 24, 2016.

Phase 33 Application

Before submitting an application, organizations are encouraged to review the EFSP Responsibilities and Requirements Manual.  This document contains information on allowable spending and other conditions of the program.
