Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program

The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act) amended the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, including major revisions to the Emergency Shelter Grants program, now the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program. The ESG program is designed to identify sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons, as well as those at risk of homelessness, and provide the services necessary to help those persons quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis and/or homelessness. The County of Riverside receives an annual entitlement allocation from HUD to provide services in the following categories: renovation or conversion of buildings for use as emergency shelters for the homeless; maintenance and operational costs associated with emergency shelters; and the prevention of homelessness and the provision of essential services to the homeless.
