Dear friend,

At United Way of Southern Nevada, we are dedicated to ensuring that everyone in our community has access to resources that will help them lead healthy and happy lives. Today, I am thrilled to announce that local nonprofit agencies will have the opportunity to apply for access to $1,243,503 in funds through the Emergency Food and Shelter Program.

During the previous phase of EFSP, these funds provided essential services and resources to over 763,173 Clark County residents. We want to continue supporting programs that will meet the needs of members of our community and transform the lives of Southern Nevadans.

If your organization qualifies for EFSP funding, we urge you to attend the mandatory Applicant Webinar on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 9:00 am. This webinar offers you the opportunity to learn about the program and provides information on how you can apply. We are excited to support the impactful services you offer to our community!
