SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FY2007 SuperNOFA (Notice of Funding Availability) for HUD's Discretionary Grant Programs was published in the Federal Register on March 13, 2007 (72 FR 11661). The NOFA announced the availability of approximately $28.4 million in HOPWA competitive grant funding.

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. As in FY2006, the procedure for expiring permanent supportive housing grants that are eligible for renewal was established in a separate Notice entitled, “Standards for Fiscal Year 2007 HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing Renewal Grant Applications.” The HOPWA assistance made available in the 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 2007. The competition was announced in a NOFA published in the Federal Register March 13, 2007 (72 FR 11661). 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 27 renewal and 4 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 selected projects will provide housing assistance to an estimated 2,200 units/households for low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families. The 31 grant awards total $32,123,248 and the selected grant applicants have reported the commitment of approximately $41.8 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 Appendices A and B.
