The Fulton County Department of Community Development’s Homeless Division is offering another opportunity for organizations to apply for the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) COVID 19 grant funds. Funds will be awarded to Fulton County’s municipalities (except for Atlanta, which receives a direct allocation from the Department of Housing and Urban Development) and eligible organizations that support Fulton County’s citizens who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Fulton County was allocated $2,529,828.00 in Emergency Solutions Grant funding in two separate allocations of $574,624.00 and $1,955,204.00, respectively, under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Approximately $1,609,778.00 million in funding from the second allocation is available to support community efforts to prevent, prepare for, and respond to Fulton County citizens’ needs who are homeless or at risk for homelessness due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Organizations that were previously awarded funds during the first ESG COVID-19 application opportunity may apply to offer services in a different ESG COVID program area.
Additionally, the County is releasing grant applications for ESG 19 and ESG 20 Allocations of $300,803.00 and $308,286.00, respectively.
