Emergency Services Program

GSH provides grants of up to $1,150 per household to prevent evictions or help with the first month’s rent and security deposits. Requests are carefully evaluated for factors that lead to long-term housing stability, helping us keep households at risk of homelessness from losing their home. Eligible clients must live within Region 1 of Fairfax County. Assistance is limited to once every 12 months.

GSH only accepts Emergency Services referrals for rental assistance through Fairfax County’s Coordinated Services Planning (CSP). If you are in need of rental assistance, please contact CSP directly at (703) 222-0880.

GSH is not an emergency shelter. If you are homeless and in need of emergency shelter, please contact CSP at (703) 222-0880.
