Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Announces Emergency Solutions Grant Awards

Over $2.9 million awarded to support homeless shelters and services

New Carrollton, MD (September 6, 2017) – The Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development today announced the recipients of Fiscal Year 2018 grants through the Emergency Solutions Grants program. Over $2.9 million in program grants will assist homeless shelters and support homeless services in 19 counties and five municipalities in Maryland. In Fiscal Year 2017, over 6,200 Marylanders experiencing or at risk of homelessness were assisted with services through the Emergency Solutions Grants program. The awards are expected to leverage over $3.4 million in additional funding.

“Homelessness affects all parts of Maryland,” said Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development Secretary Kenneth C. Holt. “The state is proud to partner with local communities and nonprofit service providers through the Emergency Solutions Grants program to shelter and support this vulnerable population.”

Emergency Solutions Grants funds are used to support shelter operations, outreach, as well as prevention and rapid re-housing. Rapid re-housing is an important, evidence-based strategy that quickly moves homeless households back into housing and provides time-limited services that are scaled to the need of the family.
