Crisis Intervention Services awarded $100K

Pella —

The Iowa Finance Authority announced $2 million in federal grants awarded to fight homelessness and other prevention initiatives. In that $2 million is $100,000 for Crisis Intervention Services, which assists domestic abuse victims in Marion County and several others. 
The funding is made available through the federal Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and by the Iowa Finance Authority in Iowa. 
The purpose of the ESG program is to help Iowans and their families quickly regain stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness.
Types of assistance can include street outreach, emergency shelter, homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing. Examples of eligible initiatives include funds for shelter operations and essential services, short-term rental or utility assistance, case management and housing relocation and stabilization services.
“The Iowa Finance Authority is proud to allocate this vital funding to our partner agencies throughout the state,” said Iowa Finance Authority Executive Director Dave Jamison. “This federal resource will soon be put to direct use in helping some of Iowa’s most vulnerable citizens to secure affordable housing all throughout Iowa.”
