WASHINGTON, DC – On Tuesday, the Biden administration announced it will publish a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for $350 million under the humanitarian portion of the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP-H) to help local communities around the country better manage the costs of humanitarian assistance in their communities.
Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) issued the following statement:
