What is this Program?

The HOPWA grant is a program designed to provide resources and incentives to devise long-term comprehensive strategies for housing assistance and services for low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families.

HOPWA funds may be used to assist all forms of housing designed to prevent homelessness for persons living with HIV/AIDS, including emergency housing, shared housing arrangements, apartments, single room occupancy (SRO) dwellings, and community residences. Appropriate supportive services must be provided as part of any HOPWA assisted housing.
