Grant Description
Grants to Utah nonprofit and faith-based organizations, and state, local, and Indian tribal agencies, for programs that benefit people who are experiencing homelessness. Funding is intended to provide emergency shelter, permanent housing, outreach, rapid and transitional rehousing, homelessness prevention activities, and more.

DWS-OHS Homelessness Funding can be used to provide a wide range of services and support. All applications must identify as one of the following project types:

  • Emergency Shelter (ES) activities are designed to increase the quantity and quality of temporary shelters provided to homeless people, through renovating existing shelters or conversion of buildings to shelters, paying for the operating costs of shelters, and providing essential services. ES includes day shelter programs, which provide drop-in services and temporary shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness during daytime hours only. This does not include winter-only emergency shelter projects.
  • HMIS Comparable Database (HMIS) costs for agencies who are legally prohibited from entering data into the Utah Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) due to federal restrictions.
  • Homelessness Prevention (HP) activities are designed to prevent an individual or family from experiencing literal homelessness through housing relocation, stabilization services, and rental assistance.
  • Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is long-term, community-based housing that has supportive services for individuals experiencing homelessness with disabilities. This type of supportive housing enables the special needs populations to live as independently as possible in a permanent setting. Permanent housing can be provided in one structure, several structures at one site, or in multiple structures at scattered sites.
  • Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) activities are designed to help people experiencing literal homelessness quickly obtain permanent housing through housing location and providing rental assistance.
  • Street Outreach (SO) activities provide essential services for individuals experiencing unsheltered homelessness, connecting them with emergency shelter, transportation, housing, or critical services.
  • Transitional Housing (TH) is where all program participants have signed a lease or occupancy agreement, in order to facilitate the movement of individuals experiencing homelessness into permanent housing within a 24-month period.
  • Other (Other) projects that benefit people experiencing homelessness that absolutely do not fall under any of the other project categories listed above. Case management programs should be considered in one of the project types above, not as "other."
