The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) provides housing assistance and supportive services for low-income person with HIV/AIDS and their families who meet certain eligibility requirements. HOPWA enables eligible persons with HIV/AIDS and their families to secure decent safe and sanitary housing in the private rental market by subsidizing a portion of the household’s monthly rent.
HOPWA case managers are able to assist with Short-Term Mortgage, Rent, and Utilities (STRMU), Tenant-based Rental Assistance (TBRA), Resource Identification, and Supportive Services (i.e. housing case management).
