Georgia’s Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) Program provides shelter and essential supportive services to homeless persons. This program funds nonprofit organizations and local government entities operating homeless housing and/or providing services for the homeless. The funding is used to fund housing operations, emergency shelter, transitional housing, and supportive services. About 33,000 households benefited from the program in FY11.
Georgia’s ESG is jointly funded by federal HUD Emergency Solutions Grant funds and the State Housing Trust Fund. For FY16, the Houisng Trust Fund Commission reserved approximately $1.5 million dollars available for the HTF ESG program.
