The FY2005 SuperNOFA (Notice of Funding Availability) for HUD's Discretionary Grant Programs was published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2005 (70 FR 14109). The NOFA announced the availability of approximately $37 million in HOPWA competitive grant funding. The Department published a second FY2005 HOPWA competition NOFA in the Federal Register on August 22, 2005 (70 FR 48970), for the remaining $18 million in FY2005 funding.
The purpose of the HOPWA NOFA announcement was to solicit applications for three types of HOPWA competitive grants: (1) Renewal of expiring permanent supportive housing projects; (2) awards for new long-term projects for permanent supporting housing from states and units of local government not eligible for HOPWA formula funding; and (3) awards for new Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) demonstration grants for transitional, short-term, and emergency housing projects. Grant selections were made for renewal projects and SPNS demonstration projects. The competition did not solicit or award any new long-term projects from states and units of local government that do not receive HOPWA formula funding.
The HOPWA assistance made available in this announcement is authorized by the AIDS Housing Opportunity Act (42 U.S.C. 12901), as amended by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102-550, approved October 28, 1992) and was appropriated by the HUD Appropriations Act for 2005. The competition was announced in a NOFA published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2005 (66 FR 12223). Each application was reviewed and rated on the basis of selection criteria published in the NOFA.
Public Benefit: The award of HOPWA funds to the 14 renewal and 5 new project awards will contribute towards HUD's mission in providing housing support that results in the provision of safe, decent, and affordable housing for persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families who are at risk of homelessness. The selected projects will provide housing assistance to an estimated 1,084 units/households for low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families. The 19 grant awards total $18,871,529 and the selected grant applicants have reported the commitment of approximately $22.6 million in leveraging of other Federal, State, local, or private resources to provide additional supportive services for project beneficiaries and $4.8 million in leveraging for other project activities.
In accordance with Section 102(a) (4) (C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat.1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the details of these funding grant announcements in Appendices A and B.Start Signature
