The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded more than $1.3 million to help the Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA) provide housing for people with HIV/AIDS. Idaho is one of 12 states to get the funds, IHFA officials said. In the last three years, IHFA has helped house 178 people long-term, said IHFA officials. The money will be distributed to seven service providers throughout the state, including North Idaho AIDS Coalition in Coeur d'Alene, North Central District Health in Lewiston, Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority in Boise, Family Practice Residence of Idaho in Boise, south Central District Health Department in Twin Falls, South Eastern Idaho District Health in Pocatello, and District Seven Health Department in Idaho Falls.
