Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations to provide services to homeless populations in eligible regions during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding may be used for emergency shelter programs and street outreach services. Projects must serve individuals in the City of Irving.
The city has received federal funding to assist low‐income households during this challenging time. Specifically, the city has received a special allocation of Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds are referred to herein as the ESG‐Coronavirus (ESG‐CV) funds.
As established in the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR), Title 24, Part 576.100, ESG funds may be used for five program components:street outreach, emergency shelter, homelessness prevention, rapid re‐housing assistance, and HMIS; as well as administrative activities.
Due to the current public health crisis, and the previous ESG and ESG‐CV allocated within in the City of Irving during the previous funding rounds, the City wants to prioritize the following eligible categories:
Solid and justified proposal for the other eligible activities could be considered after funding the prioritized activities.
Street Outreach: The goal of Street Outreach Services are to make connections to stable housing with tailored services and supports of a client's choice, such as health and behavioral health care, transportation, access to benefits, and more, through person‐centered, trauma‐informed, and housing‐focused services. Programs are encouraged to take advantage of the flexibilities under ESG‐CV to provide housing‐focused services and quickly move clients off the streets and into permanent housing. Agencies will need to demonstrate that ESG‐CV funds will be used to meet the needs of the unsheltered homeless population and frontline staff to stay safe and healthy during the COVID‐19 pandemic. Higher priority is given to organizations that demonstrate the ability to coordinate services with Irving-based programs, non‐profit organizations, faith‐based organizations, and service providers.
Emergency Shelter: The goal of the shelter system is to provide a safe, accessible place to stay for those experiencing homelessness and to move them towards and into appropriate and stable permanent housing. Shelters achieve this goal by connecting homeless households with appropriate permanent housing options, as well as other services and community resources that will help them obtain or maintain housing. Agencies will need to demonstrate that ESG‐CV funds will be used for shelter residents to stay safe and healthy during the COVID‐19 pandemic. The City will provide funding under the Emergency Shelter component to shelters for eligible activities associated with the provision of shelter operations.
