HUD announces the availability on its Web site of the applicant information, submission deadlines, funding criteria, and other requirements for HUD's FY2011 Housing for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program NOFA. Specifically, this NOFA announces the availability of approximately $9.1 million made available under the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, Public Law 112-10, approved April 15, 2011 for the Housing for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program.
The purpose of the HOPWA program is to advance HUD's implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). HOPWA NOFA also addresses the Department's Fiscal Year 2010-2015 Strategic Plan and the Opening Doors Federal Strategic Plan To Prevent and End Homelessness. These actions address goals to: Prevent and end homelessness; increase the supply of affordable housing; and increase the coordination of mainstream housing resources and other health and human services.
The HOPWA NOFA announces funds available for projects that address both: (1) Direct housing assistance and service delivery to low income persons and families living with HIV/AIDS, including homeless individuals and families; and (2) comprehensive planning and coordination of local resources in meeting housing and service needs of the population. As a result of project efforts, communities will be assisted in the development and use of an Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan (IHHP) to be issued at the end of the third year of operation. The IHHP is an administrative function and should demonstrate local system changes in the delivery of housing and services. Grantees are expected to provide housing assistance to eligible persons in their communities while concurrently examining and comprehensively integrating local services for coordinating and streamlining where possible the delivery of those services in your community.
