The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program is intended to develop a range of housing assistance and support services for low-income persons with HIV/AIDS and their families. It was authorized by the AIDS Housing Opportunity Act of 1992 and is administered by the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) office.
Agencies Providing HOPWA Services HOPWA housing providers provide a number of housing options for PWA's. Transitional housing is available to income-eligible PWA households with at least one minor child for a two (2) year period. In addition, set aside apartment units are available for a duration of approximately four (4) years. As long as you are a resident in good standing in either of these programs and continue to be HOPWA eligible, your name remains on the regional HOPWA waiting list so that you can be considered for long-term tenant-based rental assistance opportunities when they arise.
