HUD Awards $24 Million to Renew Support to 25 Local HIV-AIDS Housing Programs

July 05, 2016 Print ShareThis

On July 5, 2016, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced $24 million in grants to assist more than 1,200 low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families annually. These grants provide a combination of housing assistance and supportive services for this vulnerable population.

The funding announced today is offered through HUD’s Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS Program (HOPWA) and will renew HUD’s support of 25 local programs. These local programs will use the grants announced today to continue providing housing assistance to more than 1,200 households annually throughout the three-year grant period.

“Simply put, housing is healthcare,” said Secretary Julián Castro. “We’re proud to continue working with our local partners to provide housing and care for low-income individuals living with HIV/AIDS and their families. Their hard work continues to provide opportunities for our fellow Americans to build productive and prosperous futures.”
