Grants to West Virginia nonprofit organizations for programs that address the housing needs of low-income individuals with HIV/AIDS and their families who are homeless, have unstable housing, or are at risk of homelessness. Funding is intended to provide housing and other support services to help the most vulnerable households with multiple health and life challenges to achieve housing stability and to increase access to care, reduce emergency care costs, and improve life outcomes for beneficiaries.

Program Description:

- Program emphasis should be placed on providing adequate assessment of program participant’s housing barriers with a focus on stabilizing their housing as soon as possible. The overall goal of the HOPWA program is that 80% of those assisted with HOPWA housing assistance are stably housed at the end of the program year.
- HOPWA program participants should connect with other mainstream resources to assure the greatest impact with the least amount of HOPWA funds used.
- All funded HOPWA subrecipients are expected to develop, with the input of each program participant, an individualized housing plan.
- Program emphasis should be placed on successfully coordinating services for program participants so that each person served has contact with a case manager and a primary health care provider and can access and maintain medical insurance/assistance and sources of income

The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program is flexible and supports a wide range of eligible housing activities and support services, so that subrecipients may customize programs based on community housing and service needs, special sub-populations served, and other available public and private resources. Persons living with HIV/AIDS confront unique barriers to accessing housing, care, and services. These challenges are compounded by experiences of housing discrimination, stigma, or limited local affordable housing options, and often jeopardize an individuals’ chances of remaining stably housed. By assisting with housing and related services, the HOPWA program helps people living with HIV/AIDS to enter housing, access and remain in care, and adhere to complex treatment regimes.

For additional information about the goals and objectives of HOPWA, see:

Eligible activities are intentionally focused on housing—either financial assistance to help pay for housing, or services designed to keep people in housing or obtain housing. This assistance is not intended to provide long-term support for program participants, nor will it be able to address all of the financial and supportive services needs of households that affect housing stability. Rather, assistance should be focused on housing stabilization, linking program participants to community resources and mainstream benefits, and helping participants develop a plan for preventing future housing instability.
