The National Legislative Office provided FOP members with information, released by the White House, regarding the Administration’s recent action to allocate $2.96 billion in Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) funding to support homeless Americans and individuals at risk of becoming homeless. This funding will:
- Ensure emergency shelters are available and assist with the cost of operations;
- Provide hotel/motel vouchers for homeless families and individuals;
- Deliver essential services to people experiencing homelessness; and
- Prevent individuals from becoming homeless and rapidly rehouse homeless individuals.
