Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations and local government agencies for programs that help homeless people and families, or those that are at risk of becoming homeless. Funding is intended to be used as part of a system that responds to housing emergencies in an attempt to ensure that homelessness is brief, rare, and one-time. The program supports two primary functions: Emergency Response Activities, including emergency shelter operations and services, as well as street outreach; and Housing Stability Activities including homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing.
Agencies participating in the ESG program and/or receiving ESG funds, are eligible to perform activities under the following components:
For additional information about these components, see:
Activities can include:
No more than 60% of funds can be used for Emergency Response Services (Street Outreach and Emergency Shelter). While there is a maximum percent for Emergency Services, there is no maximum for Housing Stability (Rapid Re-Housing, HMIS, and Targeted Prevention). This means a Continuum of Care / Local Planning Area may choose to apply for the full 60% of Emergency Response funding or use some of that funding for Housing Stability Activities.
For a chart that shows the funding that each Continuum of Care / Local Planning Area may apply for during the FY19-20 competition, see: https://files.nc.gov/ncdhhs/2%20-%20ESG_Fair%20Share_Explainer_Final.pdf#page=2
