Emergency Solutions Grant
The Municipality of Anchorage is a Grantee for HUD’s Emergency Solution Grant (ESG) program. It receives ESG funds annually that it can use to help prevent homelessness or provide support to homeless shelters. Although the Community Safety and Development program is the coordinating entity for both the Continuum of Care and the Consolidated Plan, it passes ESG funds through to the Department of Health and Human Services. Emergency Outreach Services at the Department of Health and Human Services administer ESG for the Municipality.
