Volusia County’s Community Assistance Division has received funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Emergency Solution Grant (ESG) to help not-forprofit 501(c)(3) agencies respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
The funds – which were authorized by the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act – include $211,000 for prevention, $89,600.80 for street outreach, and $311,000 for rapid rehousing.
They must be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus pandemic among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance, and to support additional homeless assistance to reduce the impacts of COVID-19.
All programs must serve the entire county and comply with the Commission on Homelessness for Volusia and Flagler Counties’ written standards. Use of Volusia County ESG funding is prohibited in Flagler County.
Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14.
