Emergency Solutions Grant Program

Emergency Grant Services

The current Emergency Services Grant (ESG) program we have available is only for those affected by COVID-19.  Family Promise of Juneau works directly with Gastineau Human Services (the recipient of this grant through Alaska Housing Finance Corporation) to approve individuals and families for funding and provide case management.  Duplication of similar services is not permitted through this grant, and all housing needs to be approved to be in compliance with the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988.

ESG provides funding to:

  1.  Engage homeless individuals and families living on the street

  2. Improve the number and quality of emergency shelters for homeless individuals and families

  3. Help operate these shelters

  4. Provide essential services to shelter residents

  5. Rapidly re-house homeless individuals and families

  6. Prevent families/individuals from becoming homeless.
