Funding offers stable housing for individuals and families at risk of homelessness
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of HIV/AIDS Housing announced it will award more than $13 million in Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Renewal and Replacement Grants, which assist with tenant based rental assistance, supportive services, and other housing activities. This is the second of two rounds of grant announcements.
Research shows that a stable home is critical to the well-being of persons living with HIV/AIDS, and results in better health outcomes and reduced transmission of the disease. In addition to housing assistance, these local programs will provide access to supportive services such as case management, mental health services, substance abuse services, and employment training. The combination of housing assistance and supportive services are critical in sustaining housing stability, promoting better health outcomes, and increasing quality of life, which promotes self-sufficiency efforts for those able to transition to the private housing market.
Since 1992, HUD’s HOPWA Program has provided national leadership and resources that support the development and operation of high-quality supportive housing programs. Under the HOPWA Program, HUD makes grants to cities, states, and nonprofit organizations to provide housing assistance and supportive services to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families. By providing assistance with housing and related services, the HOPWA program helps persons living with HIV/AIDS enter into housing, access and remain in medical care, and adhere to complex treatment regimens. More information on the HOPWA program is available at https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/hopwa/.
