Putting Housing First: ESG-CV Funding

The Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services announces $15.7 million in Emergency Solutions Grants COVID-19 (ESG-CV) funding, strengthening the Baltimore City’s response to the pandemic and its impact.

MOHS is committing more than two-thirds of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funding — $10.7 million — to provide rapid rehousing and homelessness prevention. The remainder of the funding will support emergency shelter, street outreach, data management and ESG-CV administration and oversight. 

ESG-CV Funding Allocations for Baltimore City.

We recognize that housing solves homelessness. Making sure that those experiencing homelessness receive housing and those at risk of homelessness remain in their current housing provides stability and safety in a time of uncertainty.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where we will share highlights from the report. Share our posts and the report with the hashtag #PlacingHousingFirst to share the news.
