SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The renewal grant application notification to expiring permanent supportive housing grants was established in a HUD Notice entitled, “Standards for Fiscal Year 2011 HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing Renewal Grant Applications,” issued on January 25, 2011. The funding announcement for the new competitive grant awards were published in a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) on May 18, 2011. 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 2011.

The 26 renewal grant awards totaling $28,111, 948 and the seven new competitive grant awards totaling $8,972,579 will provide housing and supportive services to an estimated 1278 low income households and their families living with HIV/AIDS. These grant applications committed approximately $49.8 million in leveraging of other Federal, State, local, and private resources to provide additional supportive services for project beneficiaries.

The award of the seven new competitive grant recipients are funded under the HOPWA program's Special Projects of National Significance competitive grant program and these awards are for one-time only funding to be used over a three year grant period. This funding will support local planning and coordination efforts to develop and implement and Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan (IHHP) for these respective communities. The IHHP(s) will be developed as a collaborative process to improve the systematic delivery of housing and services to low-income individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS and will serve as models for other communities across the U.S. These resources will allow States, localities, and nonprofits to devise place-based comprehensive strategies for meeting the housing needs of low-income persons with HIV/AIDS while enabling the development of new cross program approaches for integrated HIV care, (housing and services) by collaborating with diverse community agencies and planning bodies, including Public Housing Authorities and DHHS-funded Ryan White CARE Act and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention grantees. The renewal grants were announced on April 26, 2011, and the new competitive grant awards were announced on September 21, 2011.

Both the renewal and new competitive grant activities compliment HUD's implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS), HUD's Start Printed Page 14108Fiscal Year 2010-2015 Strategic Plan and the Opening Doors Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. These award 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.
