ESG PROGRAM INFORMATION
The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program is a component of the State’s Continuum of Care system designed to alleviate homelessness in Oklahoma. ESG programs enable homeless individuals and families to move toward independent living by providing emergency housing, supportive services, and housing assistance. ESG funds are provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on an annual basis and administered by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. The general goals of this funding are consistent with those established by HUD and are intended to benefit people with low to moderate income:
- Provide decent housing
- Provide a suitable living environment
- Expand economic opportunities
