The Emergency Solutions Grants Program is authorized by Title IV of the Stewart B. McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11371-11378). The grant is available to units of general local government or private nonprofit organizations. The purpose of the program is to support the beginning steps in Idaho’s Continuum of Care process by preventing homelessness, rapidly re-housing the homeless, and providing emergency shelter that enables persons experiencing homelessness to move toward independent, stable housing. If you would like additional information about the ESG program, you may email IHFA’s Homeless Programs Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
