How to Apply for Homeless Prevention in San Diego

The homeless prevention and rehousing programs are time-limited. Currently, every year the needs of the greater San Diego County are reassessed. If taxpayer dollars allow it, and there is a need, then additional funding may be given to the region for stopping the evictions of income-qualified families.

Apply for ESG through the San Diego County website.

Access to Services

The purpose of the Coordinated Entry System (CES) is to ensure that all people experiencing homelessness in San Diego County have fair and equal access. They must be quickly identified, assessed, and prioritized for housing resources, no matter where or when they present for services. The first step in getting entered into the coordinated entry system is to have an assessment called the VI-SPDAT Completed. Assessment centers can be found here
