​​​Florida Housing Coalition Presents

This training will focus on the ESG-CV allocations and the potential impact it can have in significantly reducing homelessness. Participants will learn about traditional ESG funding, how that differs from ESG-CV funding, and the need to understand fully the associated regulations. We will also discuss HUD waivers and guidance related to ESG, ESG-CV, and CoC programs that are available as of the date.

​On March 27, the CARES Act was signed into law. This legislation provides $12 billion of rental assistance across the nation, including over $140 million for Florida. $4 billion was set aside for Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV), along with additional funding for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA-CV), and other rental assistance programs for low-income households.
