Emergency Shelter Grant Program

[34 Pa.B. 6054]

   The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department), Center for Community Building, Office of Community Development, is anticipating applying for funding through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

   The Emergency Shelter Grant Program (program) is established within Title IV, Subtitle B 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 to the Customer Service Center, Department of Community and Economic Development, 4th Floor, Commonwealth Keystone Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120 in accordance with the Department's Single Application requirements. A copy of the application must also be sent to the appropriate regional office. The application window will open on November 8, 2004, and close at 5 p.m. on January 21, 2005. Applications received prior to or after these dates may not be considered for funding.
