The HEARTH Act revised the Emergency Shelter Grants Program to create the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program. The Emergency Shelter Grants provided funds under the first allocation of FY 2011 funds and earlier fiscal years. ESG recipients and subrecipients use Emergency Shelter Grants Program funds to rehabilitate and operate emergency shelters and transitional shelters, provide essential social services, and prevent homelessness.
Guides, tools, webinars, and other resources were provided to assist grantees and program partners in designing and implementing their programs. They are available now for historical reference.
