West Virginia Community Advancement and Development (WVCAD)

Grants to West Virginia nonprofit organizations to help individuals and their families find permanent housing solutions after a period of homelessness or a sudden housing crisis. Applicants must consult with program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended for outreach and shelters; for initiatives that aim to prevent homelessness; and to address the needs of the homeless and of those who are at risk of becoming homeless. The program is targeted to individuals and families who without this assistance will become or remain homeless, and resources will be allocated to applicants with the best outcomes for those they serve. Applicants must demonstrate community collaboration.
Program emphasis should be placed on providing adequate assessment of program participant’s housing barriers with a focus on moving them to permanent housing as soon as possible. The goal is that no one is homeless (living on the streets or in emergency shelter) for more than 30 days. ESG program participants should connect with other mainstream resources to assure the most impact with the least amount of ESG funds used, since there are rarely sufficient funds to serve all persons at-risk of homelessness. Communities must limit the use of funds for those individuals who lack the resources or support systems to remain in housing without intervention.
Components of the program include:
- Street Outreach
- Emergency Shelter
- Rapid Re-Housing
- Homelessness Prevention
For additional information about these program components, see:
The WVCAD ESG program should exhibit inter-agency collaboration to address the five goals outlined in the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness’ Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness titled Home, Together: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. Those goals are:
a. To end homelessness among Veterans,
b. To end chronic homelessness among people with disabilities,
c. To end homelessness among families with children,
d. To end homelessness among unaccompanied youth, and
e. To end homelessness among all other individuals.
