About Suburban Virginia HOPWA
N VA Regional HOPWA Waitlist is Closed - Requirements for Those on the Waitlist
The waitlist for HOPWA closed January 30, 2015. There are no plans to reopen it. If and when NVRC re-opens the waitlist, an announcement will be posted on the website, emailed to all HOPWA and Ryan White service providers funded through NVRC, and emailed to members of the NVH Consortium.

Those currently on the waitlist are required to update their personal contact information by submitting changes in writing to NVRC in order to remain on the waitlist.  This is very important when the list is closed as clients whose contact information is wrong risk missing out when called for services.  While NVRC will not be taking new applications when the waitlist is closed, staff will continue to let those currently on the waitlist know about HOPWA housing opportunities that may become available to them.  

Emergency Short-Term HOPWA Housing Assistance is Available without a Waitlist
