Emergency Shelter Grant Program

[29 Pa.B. 6267]

   The Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has been invited to apply for funding through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

   The Emergency Shelter Grant Program is established within subtitle B of Title IV of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C.A. §§ 11371--11378). The program authorizes grants for the rehabilitation or conversion of buildings for use as emergency shelters for the homeless, for the payment of certain operating expenses and essential services in connection with emergency shelters for the homeless, and for homeless prevention activities. The program is designed to be the first step in a continuum of assistance to enable homeless individuals and families to move toward independent living as well as to prevent homelessness.

   One copy of the application may be submitted to the Department by local governments on behalf of homeless service providers to the Customer Service Center, DCED, 4th Floor, Forum Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120 in accordance with DCED's Single Application requirements. A copy of the application must also be sent to the appropriate regional office. The application window will open on January 1, 2000, and close at 5 p.m. on February 29, 2000. Applications received after this date may not be considered for funding.

   Applications forms and instructions may be obtained by contacting the Department's regional offices or the main office in Harrisburg. Persons with a disability who wish to submit an application in accordance with the provisions stated herein and who require assistance with that application and persons who require copies of this notice in an alternate format (large type, braille, and the like) should contact Edward Geiger, Room 502 Forum Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120, (717) 787-5327 to discuss how the Department may best accomodate their needs.
