Non Congregate Shelter (NCS)

About The Program

The overall goal is to cooperate regionally across the state with all grantees to ensure the needs of the vulnerable populations are met in a coordinated way.

Non Congregate Shelters (NCS) may include hotel rooms, apartments, or other temporary housing options where individuals or families can have their own private living space. They often include access to amenities such as a bathroom, kitchen, and laundry.

Goals of NCS Initiative:

  • Acquisition and Development of Non- Congregate Shelter: These structures can remain in use as a non-congregate shelter or can be converted to: Emergency shelter under the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program; Permanent housing under the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program; or affordable housing under the HOME Program.
  • The cost of conversion cannot be paid with HOME-ARP.
  • Includes private units or rooms for temporary shelter the serve individuals and families that meet one or more of the qualifying populations and do not require occupants to sign a lease or occupancy agreement.
