Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)

The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) provides funding for essential services, operations, and homeless prevention activities to emergency homeless shelters, transitional housing for the 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.

The Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority released three Request for Proposals (RFPs) for the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG). Applicant’s proposal must be submitted electronically via Jot Form and received by IHCDA no later than June 20, 2022 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time. Applications received after this date and time will not be accepted. Faxed, emailed or mailed applications will not be considered.
