Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) - HUD’s Emergency Solutions Grant (previously known as the Emergency Shelter Grant program) reflects the change in the program’s focus from addressing the needs of homeless people in emergency or transitional shelters to assisting people to quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis and/or homelessness.

ESG is intended to broaden existing emergency shelter and homelessness prevention activities to add short and medium-term rental assistance and services to rapidly rehouse homeless people.

Homelessness Prevention Component – may be used to provide housing relocation and stabilization services and short and/or medium-term rental assistance necessary to prevent an individual or family from moving into an emergency shelter or another place described in the homeless definition.  In addition, for this component, the household must have an annual income below 30% of area median income.  See below for the CURRENT income limits:

30% Limit   1 Person    2 Persons    3 Persons    4 Persons    5 Persons   
$19,850 $22,650 $25,500 $28,300 $30,600

Rapid Rehousing Component – may be used to provide housing relocation and stabilization services and short and/or medium-term rental assistance as necessary to help a homeless individual or family move as quickly as possible into permanent housing and achieve stability in that housing.  Eligible participants will meet HUD’s definition of homeless.
