Consolidated Homeless Grant

Consolidated Homeless Grant

The Consolidated Homeless Grant (CHG) provides resources to fund homeless crisis response systems to support communities in ending homelessness. Grants are made to local governments and nonprofits. Homeless crisis response systems respond to the immediacy and urgency of homelessness and ensure that everyone has a safe and appropriate place to live.

The State Homeless Strategic Plan and Annual Report of the Homeless Grant Programs are located here.
