Public Notice

Emergency Solutions Grant CV (ESGCV) Program

York County intends to submit an application to the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for Federal Emergency Solutions Grant CV (ESGCV) funding under the ESGCV Code Blue program. The County intends to apply for $83,210.00 in funding for Temporary Shelter Operations. The York County Planning Commission will be the lead agency and intends to execute a subrecipient agreement with Children’s Aid Society, York, PA.  

Please direct comments regarding the application to Joiann Galiano, Chief, Community Development Department, York County Planning Commission, jgaliano@ycpc.org or 7171-771-9870.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act of 2020 (CARES Act) provided for a supplemental appropriation of Homeless Assistance Grants under the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESGCV), as authorized by McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987 (P.L. 100¬77), as amended by the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009 (P.L. 111-22) (42 U.S.C.S.§11371 et. seq.). 

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the DCED, has received a second allocation of ESGCV funds totaling $19,930,907, from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). DCED is reserving a portion of the ESG-CV funds for use toward emergency shelter in preparation for the winter months 2020-2021.  

This reservation, entitled ESGCV Code Blue, will allow applicants to apply for funding for emergency shelter and temporary emergency shelter to expand shelter for those experiencing literal homelessness. DCED’s priority for the use of these funds will be to assist homeless providers and communities prepare for, prevent the spread of, and respond to the coronavirus through the use of emergency shelter and temporary emergency shelter components.
