Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations to provide services to homeless populations in eligible locations during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Applicants must attend a training workshop prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for emergency shelter programs and street outreach services. Eligible projects serve individuals in the City of Irving.
The City of Irving is the recipient of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) Emergency Solutions Grant Funds (ESG-CV). These ESG-CV funds must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance and to support additional homeless assistance and homelessness prevention activities to mitigate the impacts created by the pandemic.
Funds must be used to assist Irving residents experiencing homelessness or receiving homeless assistance. Applicant agencies must apply for program funding under one of the following specific categories:
Street Outreach: The goal of Street Outreach Services is 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.
