STATE ESG APPLICATION - NOTICE OF INTENT TO APPLY

On October 30, 2014, the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) issued a Notice of Funding Availability for Emergency Solutions Grant funds. HCD requires each Continuum of Care (CoC) to assign points for the 'Need for Funds' rating category in all ESG applications received within their service area.

This process requires the CoC to develop rating/ranking criteria based on local priorities. CoCs will assign up to 100 points for project alignment with the CoC's homeless priorities. Each application must also be ranked by priority. Total score cannot exceed 100 points.

Please contact Juanita Preciado via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Monday, December 1st by 2:00 p.m. to formally notify the CoC of the organization's intention to submit a State ESG project application. Only applicants that formally notify the CoC via the established process by December 1st, 2014 will be considered for evaluation and submission to State HCD. Agencies will receive an email confirmation that their notification was received. If a confirmation is not received within 2 business days, agencies must follow up to ensure a confirmation email is received. Once available, but no later than December 1st, the CoC will email instructions and process information to those intending to apply. Please do not submit any materials at this time as they will not be accepted nor reviewed outside of the established process and period specified.

The deadline to submit an application for local CoC rating and ranking will be December 15, 2014 by 12:00 noon. This is only for agencies submitting applications eligible for State ESG funding (local ESG funding for Santa Ana, Anaheim, Garden Grove, and the County of Orange is determined by those jurisdictions.)
