Encampment Resolution Funding (ERF) Program

The ERF Program is a $50 million competitive grant program available to assist local jurisdictions in ensuring the wellness and safety of people experiencing homelessness in encampments by providing services and supports that address their immediate physical and mental wellness and result in meaningful paths to safe and stable housing.

Projects also focus on sustainable restoration of public spaces to their intended uses while safeguarding the needs of the unhoused people seeking shelter.

Encampment resolution projects must be human centered, adhere to housing first, and be scalable and replicable for diverse communities across the state.

Eligible applicants include counties, Continuums of Care (CoCs), and cities of any size.
