Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS

The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program is the only Federal program dedicated to the housing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. Under the HOPWA Program, HUD makes grants to local communities, States, and nonprofit organizations for projects that benefit low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families.

Grant Based Accounting Requirements

HUD has updated IDIS to phase out the first-in-first-out (FIFO) accounting methodology. These changes specifically tie activity funding/commitment and draws to the specific grants in IDIS. The initial changes implement grant-specific accounting beginning with FY 2015 HOPWA allocations. Funds from pre-2015 grants will continue to be committed and disbursed using the FIFO method.
