State Homeless to Housing (H2H)

Homeless to Housing (H2H) is utilized to transition to and operate three Homeless Resource Centers in Salt Lake County and to support a statewide response to homelessness. Specifically, the H2H “Emergency Shelter Operations” allocation provides funding to emergency shelters with a minimum capacity of 50 beds, and priority given to emergency shelters with a capacity of 200+ beds. Projects  funded through H2H that support the statewide response to homelessness include:

  • Emergency Shelter
  • Case Management, including crisis services, housing and job connection
  • Homelessness Prevention for specific sub-populations
  • Landlord-Tenant Mediation
  • Permanent Supportive Housing Case Management
  • Rapid Rehousing
  • Shelter Diversion
  • Street Outreach
  • Transitional Housing for survivors of domestic violence and youth
  • Other projects including the VOA Center for Women and Children and the Wasatch Homeless Health Care Mobile Medical Clinic

Funds from the H2H account are allocated to service providers in the State by the Utah Homeless Council (UHC). The UHC considers the diverse needs of those experiencing homelessness throughout the State when reviewing funding requests. The Office of Homeless Services (OHS) serves as staff to the UHC and develops the funding timelines for the solicitation of applications for funds. Those interested in applying for H2H funding may review current funding opportunities offered by OHS or contact the OHS directly for more information. 

The Utah Office of Homeless Services administers the State Homeless to Housing program. Questions regarding the RFP process or funding can be directed to OHSprograms@utah.gov.
