Application Posted for Second Round of Encampment Resolution Fund Grants

The Encampment Resolution Fund (ERF) program has posted the application for Round 2 funding. Nearly $240 million is available for grants to fund projects that take a person-centered approach to providing housing and services to people experiencing unsheltered homelessness in encampments, with up to $150 million prioritized for encampments on state rights-of-way. All California cities, counties and continuums of care are invited to apply for the grants.

Applicants are required to include a detailed service delivery plan that demonstrates a clear pathway to housing for individuals residing in encampments, while addressing their immediate health and safety needs. BCSH will begin accepting applications for ERF grants immediately and will continue to accept them until funding is exhausted, or June 30, 2023, whichever comes first.
