The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) provides funding for essential services, operations and homeless prevention activities to emergency homeless shelters, transitional housing for homeless, and day/night homeless shelters.  These programs provide basic needs of shelter, food, clothing, and other necessities, and many also provide case management, referrals, rental assistance and other services to individuals and/or families who are in need of assistance.

If you are a local homeless emergency shelter and/or transitional The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) is a grant funded program that provides housing funding for non-profit agencies that specialize in assisting Hoosiers with AIDS/HIV and their families. The HOPWA program is available within 77 of Indiana's 92 counties and is based on the number of Hoosiers with AIDS/HIV and is only awarded to those agencies that show as a part of their mission a focus on servicing these Persons. The remaining counties receive their funds through Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville. There are specific requirements your non-profit must adhere to in order to receive the HOPWA funding.
