FY 2013 ESG Budget Allocation

Friday, May 31, 2013

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that the total Emergency Solutions Grants program (ESG) allocation for Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 is $215 million, which is a $71 million reduction from the FY 2012 funding amount. This year, the ESG allocation was affected by a shortfall in the Homeless Assistance Grants appropriation to cover both increased renewal demand in the Continuum of Care (CoC) program and maintain ESG funding at the FY 2013 level. The existing shortfall was further affected by the 5% Sequestration reduction. Congressional direction to HUD mandated that at least $200 million be allocated to ESG, which became $190 million after the 5% sequestration cut; however, HUD chose to allocate $215 million to ESG, $25 million over the Congressional minimum.
