Reallocated ESG-CV Funding Notice
In September 2022 Fairfax County was awarded $151,471.81 in supplemental Emergency Solutions Grant funding from the CARES Act (ESG-CV) through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The additional funding was awarded based on a formula used to reallocate funds from other jurisdictions that HUD recaptured because of noncompliance with expenditure and draw deadlines. The funding is in addition to the $8,281,368 in ESG-CV funding awarded earlier.
The reallocated $151,471.81 in ESG-CV funding will be used to prevent homelessness, provide rapid rehousing to households experiencing homelessness, provide temporary emergency shelter, and cover administrative costs.
What you need to know about panhandling
Panhandling can be found in most areas of our county, generating many questions and complaints from our residents. While we may get a good feeling by providing money to an individual who panhandles, the reality is that those who are truly in need require more resources than small amounts of money.
The good news is that our county has many services and staff dedicated to help those in need. But we need your help.
