NC Emergency Solutions Grant

Purpose

The North Carolina Emergency Solutions Grant Office is a grant funder for local government entities and non-profit organizations located across the state. The State of North Carolina receives an annual Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG) grant award from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The State subsequently allocates these funds to qualified local governments and non-profit organizations which provide assistance, shelter or services to the homeless or those individuals or families at risk of becoming homeless.  

If you are an individual or family in need of housing assistance due to homelessness please contact the NC United Way by calling 2-1-1 or visit their website NC211.

OR

Locally, Coordinated Entry is the central access point in each county for those experiencing homelessness or may about to become homeless. 

Coordinated entry is the contact that can get you connected with the resources you need in your local community to help you end or prevent homelessness.  The document in the files section located at the bottom of this page provides information on how to access coordinated entry in each county in North Carolina.  If you are experiencing homelessness or are about to become homeless, find your county and contact the local coordinated entry office either by email, phone or through the web link provided.
