Emergency Solutions Grant Program

The purpose of the grant is to provide prevention assistance to households who would otherwise become homeless (many due to economic crisis) and to provide assistance to rapidly re-house persons who are homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless.  The funding served as a last resort for those in a shelter, on the street, in transitional housing or in imminent danger of becoming homeless.
