Community Development

Emergency Shelter Grant

Description of Program

The Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) program provides homeless persons with basic shelter and essential supportive services. ESG also provides short-term homeless prevention assistance to persons at imminent risk of losing their own housing due to eviction, foreclosure, or utility shutoffs. Duluth Community Development distributes these funds to local agencies and private nonprofit organizations.

ESG funds are available for the rehabilitation or remodeling of a building used as a new shelter, operations and maintenance of the facility, essential supportive services (i.e., case management, physical and mental health treatment, substance abuse counseling, childcare, etc.), homeless prevention, and grant administration.
