    Even though ESG (Emergency Solutions Grant, formerly Emergency Shelter Grant) isn’t one of the funded programs, the new CoC Interim Rule requires collaboration between ESG recipients and CoCs and also gives CoCs evaluation responsibilities for ESG outcomes. So read the info, especially the Guide available at, to learn about these important changes.

  2. I ama 63 year old disabled, homeless woman. I moved from my home in Calif, in Feb of 2008 to care for my ailing. 90 year old mother, who had been alone in her home for several years. I was one of 6 siblings, and no one else could or would care for her. She earned around$700 monthly, and needed someone to ensure she was fed and cared for. I spent nearly 3 years supporting and caring for her. I was and am paying nearly $400 monthly to store my personal belongings, which I have no access to, as they are in Santa Clarita, CA, anmod six months after her death, I was told to get out of her home, as nimy family had decided to sell it. I had spent 6 grueling months cleaning out 50 years of her memories, oclothing, and personal effects. I had no where to go and am ill myself, as well, I was and am quite ill.
