The Emergency Shelter Grant program provide funds to help improve the quality of existing emergency shelters for the homeless, create new shelters or help prevent homelessness.
The annual Continuum of Care grant is funded by HUD. It is a coordinated approach to address homelessness through housing and supportive services. The CoC programs provide permanent housing and case management for homeless people with mental health and/or substance abuse issues, transitional housing and case management for homeless families, and day care services and case management for homeless children.
Grant funds are awarded to partnering agencies on an annual competitive basis to implement activities which meet the eligible criteria as established by HUD and the goals and objectives as defined in the City’s Consolidated Plan. Non-profit Organizations are encouraged to apply for funds to serve low-income and moderate-income clients as defined by HUD income guidelines.
*Low and moderate income: family or household annual income is 80 percent or less of the Area Median Income, as established by HUD.
These are the income levels primarily served by this Division.
