A NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND FUNDING AVAILABILITY
Allegheny County Economic Development (ACED) and the City of Pittsburgh, Office of Management and Budget (CITY) are pleased to announce joint applications are available for the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program funding. ACED and the City will award funding from at least their 2020 Direct Entitlements, ESG Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (ESG-CV) any 2020 Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (PA-DCED) ESG and ESG-CV funds received. These applications will also be used for any future COVID-related Federal or State allocations of ESG funding received by either entity.
The Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program provides funding to: (1) engage homeless individuals and families living on the streets; (2) improve the number and quantity 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 and individuals from becoming homeless. Agencies awarded funds are required to participate in the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) except for domestic violence shelters, they must use a comparable database to HMIS. Regulations for the ESG-CV funds have not been published; agencies are expected to follow all regulations and program policies once enacted.
Eligible ESG Components:
1. Street Outreach – funds may be used for essential services related to reaching out to Unsheltered homeless individuals and families connecting them with emergency shelter, housing, or critical services, and providing them with urgent, non-facility-based care. Eligible costs include engagement, case management, emergency health and mental health services, and transportation
2. Emergency Shelter – funds may be used for providing essential services, including services to special populations, to homeless families and individuals in emergency shelters, operating expenses and renovating emergency shelters. Because these costs are focused on emergency shelter, a transitional facility will only be eligible to receive Emergency Solutions Grants funds for the agency received funds in 2010 and does not require clients to sign a lease or occupancy agreements.
3. Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing (HP RRH) funds may be used for rental assistance, housing relocation and stabilization services, Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection services, rent reasonableness and Fair Market Rent (FMS) analysis. Client eligibility for ESG HP RRH funding must be at or below 30% of the area median income. Client eligibility for the Homelessness Prevention component of the CARES Act funding must be at or below 50% of the area median income. The centralized intake for both funding sources will be provided by Allegheny County Department of Human Services Allegheny Link.
