The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) program, which has been operating under the same statute and regulations as established in 1992, is changing to reflect current HIV Epidemic trends with the passing and signing of Public Law 114-201. This new law includes modernization of 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" desk is open for you.
Key staff from the Office of HIV/AIDS Housing will discuss HUD's work toward ensuring communities are prepared for potential funding shifts based on the law that recently updated HOPWA's formula calculation for the first time in 25 years.
