The purpose of the ESG program is to assist households quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis. ESG funds provide for a variety of services, including: Emergency Shelter, Short-Term or Medium-Term Rental Assistance, Utility Assistance, Housing Search and Placement, and Housing Stability Case Management. The funds under this program are intended to target individuals and families who would be unsheltered but for this assistance.
Projects must demonstrate that ESG funding applied for does not merely replace (supplant) other state or local government funding for an existing service.
For more information about each of these components, see page 6 of the Application in Supporting Documents.
