[Saturday, September 9, 2017]

 The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department), Center for Community Development Operations, is anticipating receiving funding through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development for the Emergency Solutions Grant. The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (Pub.L. No. 111-22) provides funding for Emergency Solutions for the Commonwealth to address the needs of homeless people through services in Rapid Rehousing, Street Outreach, Homelessness Prevention and Emergency Shelters. The focus is to help individuals and families to quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness, or both.

 The Department will accept applications from any general purpose units of local government, including cities, boroughs, townships, towns, counties, home rule municipalities and communities, that wish to apply on behalf of other municipalities. Priority will be given to nonentitled jurisdictions; however, the Department will consider funding applications received from all eligible government jurisdictions previously listed.
