Final Emergency Solutions Grant Report

The Office of Economic Opportunity has published its end of year report for the Emergency Solutions Grant Program.

Vermont’s Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program, provided a blend of state and federal (HUD) funding to support operations, staffing and homelessness prevention and re-housing assistance at approximately 40 non-profit emergency shelter, transitional housing and prevention programs serving all regions of the state.

This report details the services and shelter provided by these publicly-funded, privately operated nonprofit partners during State Fiscal Year ’16 (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016), including performance measures for the statewide program and trends over time.
