The federal Emergency Solutions Grant program (ESG) provides funds for a variety of activities to address homelessness as authorized under the federal Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009 and State program requirements. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) administers the ESG program with funding received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

ESG makes grant funds available for projects serving homeless individuals and families through eligible non-profit organizations or local governments.  ESG funds can be used for supportive services, emergency shelter/transitional housing, homelessness prevention assistance, and providing permanent housing.  Funds are available in California communities that do not receive ESG funding directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
