A

ESG funds may be used for: 

  1. Providing essential services to homeless families and individuals in emergency shelters; 
  2. Renovating buildings to be used as emergency shelter for homeless families and individuals; and 
  3. Operating emergency shelters.

Because these costs are focused on emergency shelter, a transitional facility will only be eligible to receive ESG funds for these costs if: 

1. It meets BOTH of the following criteria under the new emergency shelter definition: 

  • Its primary purpose is to provide a temporary shelter for the homeless in general or for specific populations of the homeless; and 
  • It does not require occupants to sign leases or occupancy agreements; 

OR

2. It received funds under a FY 2010 Emergency Shelter Grants grant and met the criteria under the former emergency shelter definition (“any facility, the primary purpose of which is to provide temporary or transitional shelter for the homeless in general or for specific populations of the homeless”).
