ESG Program

Emergency Solutions Grant Program
Each year, the City of Anaheim receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for homeless assistance under the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG). The ESG program is designed to be the 1st step in a continuum of assistance to prevent homelessness and to enable homeless individuals and families to move toward independent living.

ESG funds are used by emergency shelters and other service providers for activities such as:
  • Data collection
  • Homelessness prevention
  • Rapid re-housing
  • Rehabilitation and conversion of buildings for use as emergency shelters
  • Renovation
  • Street outreach
