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.
The Office of HIV/AIDS Housing (OHH) is excited to announce the first HOPWA Institute to be held at The Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida on August 9 - 11, 2017. The HOPWA Institute is a mandatory 3-day event for HOPWA Grantees and many Project Sponsors. A link to the registration page is forthcoming and will contain further instructions and details regarding eligible attendees.
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.
Guides, tools, webinars, and other resources are provided to assist grantees and program partners in designing and implementing their programs.
This series of three self-paced online modules helps HOPWA grantees and their project sponsors improve the management and oversight of their HOPWA activities. HOPWA grantees and project sponsors will learn how to develop a framework and plan for HOPWA oversight, how to monitor eligible activities, and how to monitor financial management. The modules include practical tips, interactive elements, and downloadable handouts
