"For too many Americans living with AIDS, poverty is nearly as much of a threat as the disease itself . . . Without our help, many would be forced to live in unfit housing or become homeless. These grants mean that people fighting AIDS won't have to fight to keep a roof over their heads."
HUD estimated that the FY99 HOPWA appropriation of $225 million will provide housing assistance to about 51,875 persons, including family members who reside with the persons living with HIV/AIDS in about 41,500 units of housing.
Each HOPWA jurisdiction has submitted to the Office of HIV/AIDS Housing a summary of activities encompasing the past 12 months of their 1998 program year. The summaries were compiled for and are a part of the 1999 HOPWA Program Report to Congress. States that have HOPWA-funded programs are shown in blue. To access a particular jurisdiction, you may click on the abbreviation for the state in which the program resides. The files are also available in PDF format.
