Grants to Washington, DC nonprofit organizations and public housing agencies to provide emergency and transitional housing to homeless individuals with HIV who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to provide services that will allow individuals living with HIV to avoid and exit homelessness.

The Facility-Based Emergency and Transitional Housing programs are designed to assist participating households that are seeking to exit or avoid imminent homelessness and move along the continuum to stable permanent housing. The services specifically supported under this RFA are intended to be provided within the context of the full range of housing, robust housing case management, medical, behavioral health, education, employment and benefits access, and other supportive services available to low-income persons living with HIV in the District of Columbia. These programs are operationalized through the central point of intake located at Housing Counseling Services. All referrals for these services will be made through this organization.

Two housing services will be funded through this RFA:

  • Facility Based Housing (Emergency) – up to sixty (60) days.
  • Scattered Site Facility-Based Housing (Transitional) – within a target goal of eighteen (18) months, but not to exceed twenty-four (24) months.

Both of these housing options could include additional staffing of a HAHSTA-funded Health Impact Specialist who helps to navigate and support the participant being successful in the implementation of their housing and services plans.

Eligibility for participation in the Facility-Based Emergency Housing program will be limited to people living with HIV with incomes at or below 50% of area median income (AMI) who also are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness – as defined by HUD for the homeless Continuum of Care. The main goal of this program is successful exit to transitional or permanent housing in the shortest time necessary. All clients will be required to participate in the planning and active implementation of a permanent housing plan, with robust case management support. The two intended program objectives are either:

  • Provide emergency housing, defined as housing for no more than sixty (60) days in a six-month period. During this period, efforts will be made to assist participants in securing transitional or permanent housing, in shared or independent housing settings. Case management services will also be provided so that upon exceeding the time limitations of emergency housing, participants will have the ability to pay up to 30% of adjusted monthly income towards housing costs.; or
  • Serve as a bridge to a Permanent Supportive Housing program, for those who meet the level of need defined by the homeless housing continuum and are determined to be disabled and requiring services due to a combination of chronic homelessness and severe and persistent mental illness and/or physical disability.
