Posted by Bonnie Limbird

From the Kansas League of Municipalities:

“Supplemental Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funding, provided by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act of 2020, is now available to assist communities in their efforts to prevent and respond to homelessness. Funds must serve community members currently experiencing or at risk of homelessness and must be used to prevent, prepare for, or mitigate the effects of coronavirus. The Kansas Housing Resources Corporation will accept applications from any unit of local government, including cities and counties. Local governments may apply on behalf of nonprofit organizations, which can provide services as a subrecipient or subgrantee. Eligible grant-funded activities may include:

  • Emergency Shelter
  • Homelessness Prevention
  • Street Outreach
  • Rapid Rehousing
  • Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)
  • Program Administration

“Applications are due Tuesday, Dec. 15. Funds must be expended between Jan. 1 and Dec. 30, 2021. Questions? Review application materials online or contact ESG Program Manager James Chiselom at jchiselom@kshousingcorp.org.”
