Grants to South Carolina nonprofit and faith-based organizations, businesses, and government agencies in eligible locations to address homelessness. Funding is intended to renovate or convert buildings for use as emergency shelters for individuals who are experiencing homelessness. Grants will support critical services related to emergency shelters and street outreach for the homeless, and for homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing assistance. Eligible programs benefit residents in Horry County.

While the new Emergency Solutions Grant Program still supports emergency shelters and services to the homeless, it focuses more funding on preventing initial and recurrent homelessness, shortening the duration of homelessness, assisting in the transition from homelessness to independent living, and providing outreach, needs assessment, and other services for unsheltered homeless.  

The ESG program provides funding to:

  • Rapidly re-house homeless individuals and families;
  • Prevent families and individuals from becoming homeless;
  • Engage homeless individuals and families living on the street;
  • Improve the number and quality of emergency shelters for homeless individuals and families;
  • Provide essential services to shelter residents;
  • Maintain required HMIS beneficiary data.

For information about eligible program components see Page 4 of the Application in Supporting Documents, below.
