Housing-Related Grant Reporting

Agencies receiving housing-related grants, namely Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG) and Affordable Housing grants, must submit Fiscal Status and Beneficiary report forms semi-annually and upon close-out of the grant. These reports are due every January 31 and July 31 during the contract period.  The forms may be accessed at the "Housing Report Forms" link under Community Development Programs.
