The North Carolina Emergency Shelter Grants Program (ESG) is designed to improve the quality of existing emergency shelters, to help meet the costs of operating emergency shelters and transitional housing programs, and to provide certain essential social services to homeless individuals and families with children so that they may improve their situations.

The ESG program is also intended to restrict the increase of homelessness through the provision of preventive programs and activities. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered by the Office of Economic Opportunity, Department of Health and Human Services. The State’s ESG program year coincides with the State’s fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).
