Homelessness Prevention Grant

The Homelessness Prevention Grant program provides emergency financial assistance to families with children facing the loss of their housing due to a financial or other crisis. The Office on Homelessness is authorized to provide these grants annually to the lead agencies for the 28 local homeless assistance Continuum of Care planning areas in the state. Only those agencies can apply, using the application provided below. The intent of the program is to provide case management and financial assistance for overdue rent or mortgage payments and overdue utility bills to enable families  to remain stably housed after receiving assistance.
