Emergency Solutions Grant


The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) is designed to be the first step in a continuum of assistance to prevent homelessness and to help homeless people move toward safe and healthy living.

  • ESG funds can be used by emergency shelter operators and other service providers for activities such as street outreach, homelessness prevention, rapid re-housing and data collection.
  • Each year, we receive ESG funding from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). There are four programs in San Diego County currently funded with ESG funds.
