EHH Application

​​​​​​The Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), Housing Assistance Program (HAP), and Homeless Prevention Program (HPP) are collectively referred to as the EHH Program.  ESG is Federally Administered by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  HUD awards ESG funding to the State of Wisconsin, Department of Administration, Division of Energy, Housing, and Community Resources (DEHCR) to distribute to eligible applicants.  HPP and HAP are State of Wisconsin funding sources. The Housing Assistance Program, formerly known as the Transitional Housing Program (THP) was re-named under 2017 Wisconsin Act 59.

ESG and HPP funding are combined and allocated to one lead applicant in each HUD-recognized COC or local homeless coalition.  The lead applicant and sub-recipient applicants may apply for this funding under six different project types: administration, emergency shelter, homeless management information systems (HMIS), homelessness prevention, rapid re-housing, and street outreach. Each HUD COC or local coalition decides how to best divide funding between project types and applicants by considering local needs and project performance.
HAP funding is allocated to each of Wisconsin's HUD COCs. Each COC is responsible for distributing funds to eligible sub-recipients as they best determine.

 The application is due May 9, 2022​​.
