The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program provides grant funding to (1) engage homeless individuals and families living on the street, (2) rapidly re-house homeless individuals and families, (3) help operate and provide essential services in emergency shelters for homeless individuals and families, and (4) prevent individuals and families from becoming homeless.
Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Stimulus (CARES) Act enacted March 27, 2020, the California Department of Housing and Community Development (Department) will receive funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the amount of approximately $42 million in federal funds for the Emergency Solutions Grants Program (ESG). These funds are referred to as the ESG-Coronavirus(ESG-CV) funds and will be allocated to eligible Continuum of Care (“COC”) Service Areas (see Appendix A of the NOFA)
The ESG-CV Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) provides funding for the following objectives:
• Prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus among individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or receiving homeless assistance.
• Support additional homeless assistance and homeless prevention activities to mitigate the impacts created by corona-virus.
- Public Agency
HCD sub grants its funding to subrecipients in Continuum of Care (CoC) service areas that have at least one jurisdiction that does not receive ESG funds directly from HUD (“Nonentitlement”) as well as private non-profit organizations or units of general purpose local government.
State ESG–funded activities may serve the entire service area of the applicable Continum of Care (COC) service area, but must serve non-entitlement areas within the service area. For a list of CoC Service Areas eligible to participate in the State’s ESG program, refer to Appendix A of the current NOFA.
