2024 NOFA for CDBG Public Services & ESG Funding

The applications for the 2024 Notice of Funding Availability for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Services and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) is now closed.

Community Development Block Grant Public Services

The CDBG program provides the City with the opportunity to develop viable communities by funding activities that provide decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons. Funds may be used to carry out a wide range of community development activities, such as neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and the provision of improved community facilities and services.

Emergency Solutions Grant

The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) is a formula grant allocated by HUD according to population and other demographic factors to eligible jurisdictions nationwide. As a result of HEARTH Act changes, OHNS has established four separate eligible ESG program areas:

  1. Shelter Program
  2. Rapid Re-housing
  3. Homeless Prevention Program
  4. Street Outreach Program
