California State Emergency Solutions Grant
Continuum of Care Allocation FY2020
The County of San Luis Obispo is pleased to announce the availability of funds for the HCD California State ESG program. The ESG program provides funding to: (1) engage homeless individuals and families living on the street; (2) improve the number and quality of emergency shelters for homeless individuals and families; (3) help operate these shelters; (4) provide essential services to shelter residents, (5) rapidly re-house homeless individuals and families, and (6) prevent families/individuals from becoming homeless. Please review the local RFP and State NOFA for regulatory requirements prior to completing the application. The County will recommend up to two (2) projects for funding. The minimum grant request for a single year program must be at least $33,000.
The source of funding for this grant is federal Emergency Solutions Grant funding that has been awarded to the State and the State has made available for local Continuums of Care. Please note that all activity requests must demonstrate a one-to-one match. County administrative costs are not included in the total 2020 ESG Distribution and are included for information only. The County will reach out to awarded subrecipients after the contract with the State Department of Housing and Community Development has been executed to distribute administrative funds based on pro-rata share, should the final amount awarded by the State differ from the amount indicated in the State’s 2020 Notice of Funding Availability for the ESG Program.
The County is holding a local Request for Proposals for agencies interested in applying for Continuum of Care Allocation funds. The County has approximately $119,621 in Continuum of Care Allocation funds, with a minimum of $46,502 allocated for Rapid Rehousing and $69,753 allocated for other activities (Rapid Rehousing, Emergency Shelter, Homeless Prevention or Street Outreach).
