2020 ESG-CV2 Request for Applications

The supplemental ESG funds are to be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic among individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or receiving homeless assistance.  The ESG funds are administered through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS).  Cumberland County Community Development (CCCD), on behalf of the Fayetteville / Cumberland County Continuum of Care (CoC) on Homelessness, is soliciting applications through the ESG Program.  Each project applicant that is selected by the local CoC Grant Review Committee and approved by NCDHHS, will enter into a contract directly with the State.  The selected project applicant(s) must demonstrate it has the capacity and performance record to provide services to persons who are homeless or at-risk of being homeless through the eligible activities listed.  The project/activity must be tied to COVID-19.  In addition, the selected project applicant(s) must also be fully operational and able to begin incurring costs by January 1, 2021 or at the start of the contract period.
