Which two types of ESG Programs may be able to serve a person whose homeless status is Category 2?
A. Street Outreach
B. Emergency Shelter
C. Rapid Rehousing
D. Homelessness Prevention
“B or D” are correct. Individuals who are at imminent risk of homelessness (Category 2) may be eligible for Emergency Shelter or Homelessness Prevention. However, to be eligible for Homelessness Prevention they ALSO must have an annual income below 30 percent of median family income for the area, as determined by HUD, and lack the resources to obtain other permanent housing.
