South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) is inviting nonprofits and units of local government to submit applications for funding from the Emergency Solutions Grants program.

The Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, provides financing for short-term and medium-term rental assistance and services to stabilize and rapidly re-house individuals and households who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Funds are available annually and are awarded by SDHDA through an application process. The ESG program allocation plan and application can be found on SDHDA’s website at www.sdhda.org. Complete applications must be received at SDHDA on Wednesday, May 31, by 5 p.m. Central Time.

The South Dakota Housing Development Authority…Building a Better Quality of Life.

The South Dakota Housing for the Homeless Consortium will be holding a quarterly meeting on March 22, 2017 in the SDHDA Board Room.  The agenda is as follows:

Kick Off the New Year Serving Those Who Served
Veterans’ Holiday Relief Drive – Benefiting homeless and at-risk Veterans and Military Families

Please join the Department of South Dakota American Legion Auxiliary and partners in the 5th annual Veterans’ Holiday Relief Drive through January 30, 2017, providing a comfortable holiday season to our veterans, military members, and their families that may be homeless or in need.

On January 24th, 2017, South Dakota will be conducting our 2017 Point-In-Time (PIT) Homeless Count and our Housing Inventory Count (HIC).  Not only are these counts required by HUD and reported to Congress, they are used for potential funding opportunities here in South Dakota.  Although the PIT count does not tell us everything about need in our communities, it does provide some very valuable information as to the scope of homelessness and the progress being made to end it.

The South Dakota Housing for the Homeless Consortium (SDHHC) will be meeting from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 14 in the SDHDA Board Room.
