Emergency Solutions Grants Program

In 1987, the Stewart McKinney Homeless Assistance Act was enacted providing federal assistance to the homeless through several programs.  The Emergency Shelter Grant Program, now known as the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG),  was the first of the programs funded and as a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement city, Stockton receives a formula allocation of ESG funds each year.  These funds may be used for the rehabilitation or conversion of buildings for use as emergency shelters for the homeless, for the payment of eligible operating and social service expenses in connection with emergency shelter for the homeless and for homeless prevention activities.
