The first of these sources, the Homeless Emergency Aid Program, may be used for capital improvements serving homeless persons. All capital improvements require the jurisdiction in which the project is located to pass an emergency “shelter crisis” declaration. The required resolution format is posted below. An application addendum will be required for HEAP Capital Projects.
