Homelessness Programs

Com
munities and housing organizations around Iowa can benefit from the Iowa Finance Authority’s diverse programs to address homelessness.

Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program: A federal program designed to assist people to quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis and/or homelessness. Eligible applicants for annual funding include units of general purpose local governments (not to include local public housing authorities) and nonprofit service agencies across Iowa.

 Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA): A federal program designed to assist persons who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and their families who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. The Iowa Finance Authority manages the allocation of HOPWA funds to project sponsors across Iowa.

Shelter Assistance Fund (SAF) Program: A state-funded program that typically supports the costs of operations of group home shelters for the homeless and domestic violence shelters. Eligible applicants for annual funding include city governments, county governments and nonprofit service agencies across Iowa.

 

If you are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk of becoming homeless, there are several programs around the State of Iowa that can offer assistance. We encourage you to contact a local service provider in your area to see what options may be available to you.
