ESG Application Request - Must address the needs of DuPage County in areas such as providing emergency shelter, providing legal assistance to support the homeless or those at risk of homelessness, providing financial resources to homeless or those at risk of homelessness, providing foreclosure prevention, or providing support for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) administration for homeless and those at risk of homelessness.

      This application opportunity will make funding available for Housing & Homeless services and participation in providing Homelessness Prevention financial assistance to clients.  

      The selection process requires several steps before final approval of projects. The DuPage CDC Unit reviews and scores the applications and completes its recommendations in December to be approved by the Community Development Executive Committee in January. Health and Human Services Committee then approves the project recommendations as part of the annual Action Plan.  The DuPage County board has the final approval in March before being submitted to the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  The program year begins April 1, through March 31st the following year.  Administration of each project is done through a Sub-grantee Agreement with a sharing of responsibility between the Sub-grantee and the CDC Staff.
