Grants to New Jersey nonprofit and for-profit entities serving eligible locations to provide short-term social services for families and individuals who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. Funding is intended to assist those who are experiencing non-recurring, short-term emergencies. Eligible applicants serve the residents of Morris County. Funding may only be billed for a specific unit of service when there is no third-party insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or any other type of reimbursement, in whole or in part, for that service unit.

Eligible activities include:

  • Emergency Shelter/Hotel/Motel Placement
  • Prevention of Homelessness activities (rental subsidies, security deposits, rent/mortgage, and utility assistance)
  • Case Management: Individualized counseling and/or financial support to prevent or recover from homelessness and assist clients to obtain/retain permanent affordable housing

For 2023, the following funding distinctions will be observed:

  • Approximately 75% of SSH funds are earmarked to provide services listed above for those individuals and families ineligible for assistance through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), General Assistance (GA), and supplemental Security Income (SSI).
  • Approximately 25% of funds are earmarked specifically to provide short-term (four-month), non-recurring assistance to working families.

All providers of SSH/State and SSH/TANF Shelter and/or Prevention services (with the exception of Domestic Violence Shelters) must utilize the New Jersey “AWARDS” Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) to become a State-approved SSH vendor.
