The Department of Human Services works to ensure that appropriate housing is available for the people we serve through creating a system that integrates housing, services and income supports to enable adults to live in the community.
Grant proposals sought for housing program
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) is seeking proposals from nonprofit agencies and local units of government for housing stabilization programs and for short- or medium-term rental assistance to homeless households under the Emergency Solutions Grant Program from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). DHS will award approximately $932,000 in funding through a competitive grant process. Funds will be awarded for an 18-month period beginning July 1, 2012, and ending Dec. 31, 2013. Only agencies providing services in non-entitlement areas of the state (jurisdictions that do not receive Emergency Solutions Grant Program funds directly from HUD) will be considered for funding.
To qualify, proposals must be submitted to DHS by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 8, 2012. Agencies with successful applications will be notified by email of the funding source and amount awarded. At that time, additional documents will be required for contract processing. The Instruction Packet provides important background for all potential grantees and additional instructions on submission requirements. A savable Word version of the grant application form (sample pdf of the application) is available by contacting Isaac Wengerd (Isaac.firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
