The Imperial Valley Continuum of Care (IVCCC) would like to invite qualified applicants to apply for funds to address the needs of homeless individuals and individuals at imminent risk of homelessness in Imperial County.

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is pleased to announce the availability of new federal funds for the 2022 Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program Balance of State (BoS) through a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). The 2022 estimated BoS allocation set aside for Imperial County is $352,379. The 2022 ESG BoS Allocation NOFA outlines application requirements and timelines for recommended applicants.

The ESG program provides funding for the following objectives:

  • Engaging individuals and families experiencing homelessness;

  • Improving the quality of Emergency Shelters (ES) for individuals and families experiencing homelessness by helping to operate these shelters, and by providing essential services to shelter residents;

  • Rapidly re-housing individuals and families experiencing homelessness; and

  • Preventing families/individuals from becoming homeless.

Funding in the BoS allocation is made available based on recommendations from a CoC in two ways:

1. Through regional competitions within three geographic regions (Northern Region, Bay Area Region, Central and Imperial Valley Region) pursuant to the California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 25 CCR 8404 (a) (3); and

2. Through a noncompetitive process for Rapid Re-Housing (RR) Activities.

Continuum of Cares are responsible for recommending applicants to HCD for funds available under the NOFA. Therefore, qualified applicants interested in applying must submit their ESG BoS application for review to the IVCCC no later than:

                                                                                                     July 28, 2022

The 2022 ESG BoS NOFA, application forms along with federal and state regulations are posted on the HCD website:
