Homeless Assistance Programs
Introduction


HUD's Homeless Assistance Web Page is
available to help you learn more about HUD's homeless assistance
programs, and to keep you informed about available funding. HUD's
homeless assistance programs are broken down into two main categories, formula (non-competitive), and competitive. Competitive programs are under the umbrella of Continuum of Care.

Competitive Programs


The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act programs administered by HUD
that award funds competitively require the development of a "Continuum
of Care" system in the community where assistance is being sought. A
continuum of care system is designed to address the critical problem of
homelessness through a coordinated community-based process of
identifying needs and building a system to address those needs. The
approach is predicated on the understanding that homelessness is not
caused merely by a lack of shelter, but involves a variety of
underlying, unmet needs - physical, economic, and social. Funds are
granted based on the competition following the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs include:




  • Supportive Housing Program
    Provides housing, including housing units and group quarters, that has
    a supportive environment and includes a planned service component.
  • Shelter Plus Care Program
    Provides grants for rental assistance for homeless persons with
    disabilities through four component programs: Tenant, Sponsor, Project,
    and Single Room Occupancy Rental Assistance.
  • Single Room Occupancy Program
    Provides rental assistance on behalf of homeless individuals in connection with moderate rehabilitation of SRO dwellings.



Formula Program (Non-Competitive)


Formula grants are awarded on the basis of the Consolidated Plan that states and local jurisdictions may fill out.




  • Emergency Shelter Grant Program
    A federal grant program designed to help improve the quality of
    existing emergency shelters for the homeless, to make available
    additional shelters, to meet the costs of operating shelters, to
    provide essential social services to homeless individuals, and to help
    prevent homelessness.



Other





  • Title V program
    HUD collects and publishes information about surplus federal property
    that can be used to help homeless persons. Eligible grantees include
    states, local governments, and nonprofit organizations.
  • Base Realignment and Closure
    The congressionally authorized process the US Department of Defense has
    previously used to reorganize its base structure to more efficiently
    and effectively support our military forces, increase operational
    readiness and facilitate new ways of doing business.



If you would like to locate the HUD office closest to you, please select your Local HUD Office which will connect you with the Web Page of each Field Office. The Annual Progress Report is available now in a Word format.

Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) Program



The Emergency Shelter Grants program provides homeless persons with
basic shelter and essential supportive services. It can assist with the
operational costs of the shelter facility, and for the administration
of the grant. ESG also provides short-term homeless prevention
assistance to persons at imminent risk of losing their own housing due
to eviction, foreclosure, or utility shutoffs.

Grantees, which are state governments, large
cities, urban counties, and U.S. territories, receive ESG grants and
make these funds available to eligible recipients, which can be either
local government agencies or private nonprofit organizations.

The
recipient agencies and organizations, which actually run the homeless
assistance projects, apply for ESG funds to the governmental grantee,
and not directly to HUD. Feel free to view all CPD formula grants, including the ESG grant, or contact your local field office for further assistance.


ESG funds are available for the rehabilitation or remodeling of a
building used as a new shelter, operations and maintenance of the
facility, essential supportive services (i.e., case management,
physical and mental health treatment, substance abuse counseling,
childcare, etc.), homeless prevention, and grant administration.


Grantees, except for state governments, must match
ESG grant funds dollar for dollar with their own locally generated
amounts. These local amounts can come from the grantee or recipient
agency or organization; other federal, state and local grants; and from
"in-kind" contributions such as the value of a donated building,
supplies and equipment, new staff services, and volunteer time.

Shelter Plus Care Program (S+C)




The Shelter Plus Care Program provides rental assistance for
hard-to-serve homeless persons with disabilities in connection with
supportive services funded from sources outside the program.
Shelter Plus Care (S+C) is a program designed to
provide housing and supportive services on a long-term basis for
homeless persons with disabilities, (primarily those with serious
mental illness, chronic problems with alcohol and/or drugs, and
acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or related diseases) and
their families who are living in places not intended for human
habitation (e.g., streets) or in emergency shelters. The program allows
for a variety of housing choices, and a range of supportive services
funded by other sources, in response to the needs of the hard-to-reach
homeless population with disabilities.
Program grants are used for the provision of rental assistance payments through four components:

  1. Tenant-based Rental Assistance (TRA);
  2. Sponsor-based Rental Assistance (SRA);
  3. Project-based Rental Assistance with (PRAW)or without rehabilitation (PRA); and
  4. Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Program for Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Dwellings.


The supportive services may be funded by other Federal, State, or local sources, as well as private sources.

Supportive Housing Program


The Supportive Housing Program is designed to develop supportive
housing and services that will allow homeless persons to live as
independently as possible. Eligible applicants are States, units of
local government, other governmental entities such as PHAs, and private
nonprofits.
The Supportive Housing Program Desk Guide
highlights key aspects of the Supportive Housing Program (SHP). If you
have further questions about the program or the application process,
please contact your local HUD Field Office. Grants under the Supportive Housing Program are awarded through a national competition held annually.

The Supportive Housing Program is authorized by Title IV, Subtitle C,
of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987, as amended. It
is designed to promote, as part of a local Continuum of Care strategy,
the development of supportive housing and supportive services to assist
homeless persons in the transition from homelessness and to enable them
to live as independently as possible.
Assistance in the Supportive Housing Program is provided to help homeless persons meet three overall goals:




  • achieve residential stability,
  • increase their skill levels and/or incomes, and
  • obtain greater self-determination (i.e., more influence over decisions that affect their lives).



Specific performance measures for each of these three goals must be
established based on the needs and characteristics of the homeless
population to be served. Grant recipients are required to monitor their
clients' progress in meeting their performance measures on an ongoing
basis. In addition to recordkeeping and evaluation that grantees may
conduct for their own purposes, HUD requires recordkeeping and annual
progress reports. The annual progress report includes questions that
ask grantees to report on their progress in meeting performance
measures. Grantees are expected to make changes in their program or
adjust performance measures in response to ongoing evaluation of their
progress.
