Recipients may use up to 7.5% of their ESG Program grants for administrative costs related to planning and executing ESG activities. For detailed costs and sharing requirements, see § 576.108 in the ESG Program Interim Rule. The ESG Grant Administration Virtual Binders is coming soon.

Administrative activities do not include staff and overhead costs directly related to carrying out street outreach, emergency shelter, homelessness prevention, and rapid re-housing activities, as those costs are eligible as part of those activities.
