Date Published: January 2021


With COVID-19 rates expected to surge during the 2021 winter season and beyond, HOPWA programs should plan and prepare. As grantees and project sponsors are rolling out HOPWA CARES Act-funded housing assistance, they must be aware that the growing impact of the virus can cause greater or renewed housing crises among persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families. HOPWA programs must ensure they are implementing housing and service responses designed to get and keep households stably housed and safe. This brief guide highlights best practices, updated HOPWA guidance, and COVID-19 resources.
