DHS plans to use the $23 million in ESG CARES Act funding for the District’s Family Rehousing and Stabilization (FRSP) program and overflow emergency shelter for families.

The FRSP program will help the District respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by assisting households experiencing homelessness with rental assistance and supportive services that will quickly stabilize them and support families to meet their goals. The District is using hotels to provide overflow emergency shelter to maintain access to non-congregate shelter during the COVID-19 pandemic. Families residing in these shelters receive wrap-around case management services that will help them quickly transition to permanent housing. 

DHS discussed proposed uses for these funds with the District's Interagency Council on Homelessness's Strategic Planning Committee, which includes providers, clients, partners, and other key stakeholders.
