The CARES Act appropriated $4 billion through the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program “to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance and to support additional homeless assistance and homelessness prevention activities to mitigate the impacts created by coronavirus under the Emergency Solutions Grants program (42 U.S.C. 11371).”
HUD requires each recipient of this ESG allocation, referred to as ESG-CV, to submit reports quarterly. ESG-CV recipients will submit their reports through the Sage HMIS Reporting Repository. Detailed information on creating user accounts, generally working in Sage, and completing CSV HMIS data reporting is found in the ESG CAPER Guidebook accessible through the HUD Exchange and via the Resources tab in Sage. Reporting begins the day after the quarter ends and must be submitted within 30 days. For instance, the reporting period for a quarter ending on December 31, 2020 begins on January 1, 2021 and ends on January 30, 2021.
