On September 25, 2023, the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the state-administered Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program for Homelessness Prevention (HP). Approximately $1.7 million in disencumbered federal funds is being made available for HP activities only. 

Applications will be received over-the-counter (OTC) and reviewed as they are received. HCD will close the application window once all funds have been awarded. The application can be accessed through e-Civis.

Minimum and Maximum Amounts: $75,000 - 200,000

Eligible applicants are units of general-purpose local government or state and federally recognized non-profit organizations that have the capacity to administer this funding. Applicants must submit their HP policies and procedures. Applicants who do have HCD-approved HP policies and procedures will lose their place in the OTC submission. The NOFA outlines the requirements and timelines for applicants applying for the funding.

  2. Reach out to family, friends, and co-workers to volunteer for the count

Housing First Solano works to end homelessness by:
