Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program

In support of the Campaign to End Homelessness in Michigan, changes to the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program promote Housing First through prevention and rapid re-housing activities. Therefore, at a regional and community level it is essential for all working with those in poverty and homelessness to recognize the proven need to move from a shelter based program to a Housing First program where prevention and rapid re-housing are key.
