Grants to California local governments, including cities and counties, in eligible areas to address homelessness. Funding is intended to be redistributed to local service providers. Service providers should be engaged in the following eligible activities to benefit the homeless populations: prevention, engagement, rapid re-housing, and emergency shelter and related services. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) receives funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program and allocates funds to eligible Continuum of Care (CoC) service areas.
Continuum of Care (CoC) Allocation:
The ESG program provides funding for the following objectives:
Grantees should prioritize the advancement of racial equity at all levels of the homeless response system. The Department asks grantees to be leaders in their homeless response systems, facilitating partnerships among service organizations and promoting racial equity practices. Grantees must respond to disproportionality in access to services, service provision and outcomes. Grantees cannot simply rely on delivering a standardization of services to address equity. Grantees have the responsibility to examine their data to ensure all eligible persons receive equitable services, support, and are served with dignity, respect, and compassion regardless of circumstances, ability, or identity.
For the 2021 NOFA, all activities permitted under 24 CFR Part 576.102 shall be eligible except for: renovation, conversion, or major rehabilitation activities. Minor repairs to an ESG-funded ES that do not qualify as renovation, conversion, or major rehabilitation are an eligible use of state ESG funds.

Where there is an approved AE, the AE will be responsible for setting any minimum and maximum grant amounts, since it will be evaluating provider applications and managing these contracts. HCD will monitor AEs to ensure that they effectively manage the number of awards they make.
