HUD Issues Notice CPD-22-08: Procedural Guidance for FY 2022 HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing Renewal and Replacement Grant Applications
HUD has released Notice CPD-22-08: Procedural Guidance for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Permanent Supportive Housing Renewal and Replacement Grant Applications.
This HOPWA [Assistance Listing Number 14.241] Notice announces Renewal Grant Application and Replacement Grant Application requirements for eligible expiring HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) grants. Pursuant to the renewal authority provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (Pub. L. No. 116-94), and the renewal or replacement authority provided by both the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 (Pub. L. 117-103), and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Pub. L. 116-260), the Department will renew or replace all eligible expiring HOPWA PSH grants that meet all program requirements and were initially funded under a HUD competition for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 or earlier FY funds. HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. The HUD FY 2022-2026 Strategic Plan establishes strategic goals in line with the work supported through the Notice of funding for HOPWA PSH grants. Strategic goal 1B is to reduce homelessness, specifically by strengthening Federal, State, Tribal, and community implementation of the Housing First approach to reducing the prevalence of homelessness, with the ultimate goal of ending homelessness. Strategic goal 2B is to improve rental assistance, specifically by improving rental assistance to address the need for affordable housing. Strategic goal 4C is to integrate housing and health, specifically by advancing policies that recognize housing's role as essential to health. The Office of HIV/AIDS Housing has set a vision to elevate housing as a structural intervention in ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic in the United States, and on a nationwide basis, the HOPWA program is expected to demonstrate stable housing results, reduced risks of homelessness, and improved access to care results for clients. Applicants are encouraged to join HUD in realizing these goals by increasing efforts on increasing access and availability of permanent housing through Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) for low-income people living with HIV. Replacement application scoring supports strong PSH programs with robust opportunities for households to access TBRA.
If you have questions about the FY 2022 HOPWA Renewal Grant Application process or the Replacement Grant Application process, please email the HOPWA general inbox at HOPWA@hud.gov. Please note that HUD staff cannot assist applicants in preparing their applications.
Applications for FY 2022 renewal and replacement grant funding must be received no later than 11:59:59 PM EDT on August 1, 2022. An application received after this deadline will be considered only if HUD finds the grantee was unable to meet the deadline due to unique, extenuating circumstances. HUD strongly recommends you submit your application during regular business hours and at least 48 hours before the deadline.
