ESG Application Materials

Organizations may apply for Emergency Solutions Grants (“ESG”) funding through active Notices of Funding Availability (“NOFAs”) listed at: https://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/nofa.htm. NOFAs have details on eligible activities, funding amounts, and deadlines. See below for application materials related to NOFAs.

The Department does not directly fund individuals with ESG. The Department’s ESG funds are administered through partnerships with:

  • Local units of government, such as cities and counties
  • Private nonprofit organizations and community-based organizations
