The State Housing Emergency Grant program is only for households or persons at-risk of homelessness or homeless transitioning to housing.

To qualify for program screening, clients must first meet two requirements:

  1. Be homeless or be at risk of homelessness. To be considered homeless, the client needs a state Homeless Verification Letter. To be considered “at-risk” of homelessness, the client must have a current 45-day eviction notice.
  1. Be able to prove their long-term “sustainability.” The client must be able to show through a source of income (employment, SSI, etc) that they can pay their rent and other obligations moving forward. This program is a one-time help program to get people into housing or to remain housed. Funds are very limited.

▪ Household income at or below 50% Area Median Income
