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-rehousing activities. Therefore, at a regional and community level it is essential for all working with those in poverty and homelesness 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.
