Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act First Allocation
The ESG CARES First Allocation Programming Plan was approved by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs Governing Board on April 23, 2020.
ESG CARES First Allocation funds are allocated by each Continuum of Care (CoC) region. ESG CARES Applicants need to determine in which CoC region they belong so they will know whom to contact to apply for funding.
TDHCA has selected eight ESG CARES Coordinators for the ESG CARES First Allocations available, as listed in the table below. ESG Applicants in those CoC regions should contact the ESG CARES Coordinators for an ESG CARES First Allocation Application. For areas without ESG CARES Coordinators, TDHCA will reach out to the CoC awardees with an offer of ESG CARES First Allocation funding. TDHCA does not anticipate directly accepting ESG CARES First Allocation Applications from nonprofit organizations or units of local governments. Each CoC region is listed below and the regional allocation amounts may be subject to change.
