ESG-CV Application for Emergency Shelter Eligible Activities to Open Monday
In response to the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the U.S. Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Public Law 116-136, in March 2020, which provided a supplemental appropriation of Homeless Assistance Grants under the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program (24 CFR 576). These funds (ESG-CV) must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19 among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance and to support additional homeless assistance and homelessness prevention activities to mitigate the impacts created by the virus.

KHC will accept applications from nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies for eligible activities under the Emergency Shelter component (24 CFR 576.102) of the ESG Interim Rule. ESG-CV funds may be used to support eligible activities in existing emergency shelter facilities, facilities used on a temporary basis during the COVID-19 pandemic, and for hotel/motel vouchers. If applicants meet certain threshold requirements, funds can be requested to reimburse costs incurred since March 6, 2020-the date of Kentucky's State of Emergency Order.

This application is for Emergency Shelter activities only. It is not for Street Outreach, Prevention, or Rapid-Rehousing activities. Applicants will be permitted to request funds to support HMIS and Administrative activities.

Application materials, including the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), which will contain submission instructions, will be posted on the ESG page of the KHC website no later than 3 p.m. Monday, August 24, 2020. Per the NOFA instructions, applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. ET Monday, September 14, 2020.

A webinar will be held at 10 a.m. ET Wednesday, August 26, 2020, to discuss the NOFA and to answer applicant's questions. Participation is optional, but registration is required. A recording of the webinar will be posted to the ESG page for applicants unable to participate live.
