SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FY2006 SuperNOFA (Notice of Funding Availability) for HUD's Discretionary Grant Programs was published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2006 (71 FR 11973). The NOFA announced the availability of approximately $10 million in HOPWA competitive grant funding for new projects.

The purpose of the HOPWA NOFA announcement was to solicit applications for two types of HOPWA competitive grants: (1) Awards for new long-term projects for permanent supporting housing and transitional housing projects from states and units of local government and balance of state areas not eligible for HOPWA formula funding; and (2) awards for new Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) demonstration grants for transitional, and permanent supportive housing projects. Beginning in 2006, the procedure for expiring permanent supportive housing grants that are eligible for renewal was established in a separate Notice entitled, CPD Notice 06-06, “Standards for Fiscal Year 2006 HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing Renewal Grant Applications.” The HOPWA assistance made available in the renewal notice and NOFA competition was 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 2006. The competition was announced in a NOFA published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2006 (71 FR 11973). Each application was reviewed and rated on the basis of selection criteria published in the NOFA. The renewal notice was issued on May 15, 2006.

Public Benefit: The award of HOPWA funds to the 16 renewal and 10 new project awards 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 26 selected projects will provide housing assistance to an estimated 1,088 units/households for low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families. The 26 grant awards total $27,484,189 and the selected grant applicants have reported the commitment of approximately $64.6 million in leveraging of other Federal, State, local, or private resources to provide additional supportive services for project beneficiaries.

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 Appendix A.
