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.
This page collects the latest COVID-19 guidance and resources for the HOPWA Program.
This page provides resources related to the VAWA/HOPWA Demonstration Initiative, which provides housing assistance and supportive services to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS who were homeless or in need of housing assistance due to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).
The HOPWA program changed to better reflect current HIV epidemic trends with the passing and signing of the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA), Public Law 114-201, in July 2016. HOTMA included provisions to modernize the HOPWA formula along with provisions related to other HUD programs.
In 2017, the Office of HIV/AIDS Housing hosted a training Institute for Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) funded grantees and project sponsors to ensure that all local HOPWA programs had the same thorough understanding of the HOPWA program.
Guides, tools, webinars, and other resources are provided to assist grantees and program partners in designing and implementing their programs.
