Grants to California local units of government in eligible entitlement regions for services to families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Eligible activities include prevention, engagement, rapid re-housing, and emergency shelter and related services.
The ESG program provides funding for the following objectives:
- Engaging individuals and families experiencing homelessness;
- Improving the quality of Emergency Shelters (ES) for individuals and families experiencing homelessness by helping to operate these shelters, and by providing essential services to shelter residents;
- Rapidly re-housing individuals and families experiencing homelessness; and
- Preventing families/individuals from becoming homeless.
AEs are responsible for awarding ESG funds to eligible service providers for ESG-eligible activities in their approved CoC Service Area(s). Continuation grants are acceptable if they meet the requirements of 25 CCR 8403.
For the 2019 NOFA, all activities permitted under the federal ESG regulations shall be eligible except for renovation, conversion, or major rehabilitation activities under 24 CFR Part 576.102. 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.
