Support Nonprofits

FPWA strengthens member agencies and other human services providers by helping to build their operations and meet the needs of their communities. We do this by providing important capacity- and partnership building services as well as training and grants.



Educational Opportunity Scholarships

FPWA provides member agencies with opportunities to refer young people in their programs for higher education financial assistance. This includes those pursuing two-year degrees, four-year degrees, and technical and vocational training programs.

Senior Stipends

FPWA’s Senior Stipend program provides ongoing financial assistance to New York City residents ages 66 and up who meet certain criteria and who are receiving case management. This program enables participants to age in place by providing direct financial assistance for rent and utilities.

Please contact Member Support Coordinator, Gilda Flores with questions.

Emergency Food and Shelter Program

Knowing that food insecurity is a major cause of economic anxiety for New Yorkers, FPWA proudly participants as a fiscal conduit in the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP). In this role, we receive and administer FEMA funds (via United Way NYC) to 33 sub-grantees in NYC. The sub-grantees include churches and faith-based organizations running food pantries and soup kitchens across the city. In during the 2022-23 cycle, we will administer approximately $1.3 million in emergency food funding.
