The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (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. This page provides HUD guidance on HOPWA modernization.
If your community has specific concerns about HOPWA modernization – or HOPWA in general, including program operations, reporting, or eligible activities – the HOPWA Ask A Question (AAQ) help desk is open for you.
These factsheets highlight strategies grantees can adopt to address changes in their HOPWA formula grant resulting from HOPWA Modernization. The factsheets include discussions on how to use HOPWA Eligible Activities in new or creative ways.
