Emergency Solutions Grant Program


The Emergency Solution Grant (ESG) Program assists people to quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis and/or homelessness. The annual competition for state ESG funds is facilitated by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA), however, units of local government may apply to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) independently if they choose.

The ESG Notification of Funding Availability has not been released at this time. Please visit the TDHCA ESG website to learn more about the program and competition process.

A required piece of the application is Attachment A: Certificate of Continuum of Care Participation and Coordination. All Applicants must have the Attachment A form completed and signed by the CoC Lead Agency, indicating the involvement of the Applicant in CoC planning and operations.

Texas Homeless Network (THN) is the CoC Lead Agency for the Texas Balance of State Continuum of Care (TX BoS CoC).
