Putting Housing First: ESG-CV Funding

ESG Funding Banner

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. 

Multi-colored Pie Chart titled MOHS ESG-CV Funding Allocation. Graphic representation of the following allocation - HMIS: 2%, Street Outreach: 6%. Admin: 6%, Emergency Shelter: 17%, Homelessness Prevention 22%, and Rapid Rehousing: 46%.

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.
