Emergency Solutions Grant Program

Every year the City of Moreno Valley is awarded federal grant money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for three separate allocations for cities with a population greater than 50,000.  The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) is one of the allocations.  The City of Moreno Valley accepted applications from January 20, 2016 through February 19, 2016 from the various programs and projects benefiting low and moderate income residents or neighborhoods, to eliminate slums and blight, or to address community-wide emergency needs.  The ESG funds must be used to assist, protect and improve living conditions for the homeless.

P. W. Enhancement Center was awarded approximately $145,000 of the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) from the City of Moreno Valley, through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to run from fiscal year 2016-2017.  PWEC will utilize the funding to provide the ability to engage homeless individuals and families living on the street, improve the number and quality of emergency shelters, help operate shelters and provide essential services to the shelter residents, rapidly re-house and to also prevent families and individuals from becoming homeless and provide essential services to those at risk of homelessness.

The participants in the program can be eligible to receive moving cost, utility payments,  rent application fees, as well as housing search and placement, housing stability case management, credit repair and various other services provided through this program.
