Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS Program

The HOPWA program provides funding resources for not-for-profit organizations and government housing agencies to provide housing options and services for persons living with HIV/AIDS. The mission of HOPWA is to promote stable housing and improved health status for persons living with HIV/AIDS throughout the Eligible Metropolitan Statistical Area (EMSA), which includes Minneapolis and the 13 county area. The HOPWA program is for those who are at risk of homelessness due to compounding factors, such as increased medical costs or limited ability to keep work due to AIDS, including emergency, transitional, and long-term affordable solutions . Renewals for ongoing (existing) programs receive funding priority following priorities set by the Minnesota HIV Housing Coalition, which acts as an advisory group to make recommendations for HOPWA funding. There is approximately $847,000 of program funding available for 2008. Proposals are due at 4:00 p.m., CDT, July 7, 2008.
