This notice explains the changes to the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS Program (HOPWA) program resulting from the passing and signing of the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA), Public Law 114-201. HOTMA amended the HOPWA statute to modernize the HOPWA allocation formula, address administrative provisions, and add certain program definitions. The notice details how the HOTMA provisions will impact HOPWA formula allocations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 and subsequent years. In addition, the notice outlines the changes to the HOPWA program that became effective when HOTMA was signed into law on July 29, 2016, and the changes that require HUD to undertake rulemaking to implement. The notice does not provide details on the HOPWA formula allocations for FY 2017. Exact allocations for jurisdictions will not be available until a federal budget is passed.
