HUD Grants Nearly $9 Million to Support Americans with HIV/AIDS

Written by:

It’s no secret that a tough economy makes it even harder for low-income families and individuals to get by. Imagine, then, the struggles faced by those contending not just with poverty, but with HIV/AIDS. Among the primary goals in the White House’s National HIV/AIDS Strategy are improving health outcomes and reducing health disparities for those living with this disease – and it’s certainly difficult to live the healthiest lifestyle possible without a place to call home.

Fortunately, HUD’s Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program offers communities essential resources to serve those facing an illness that affects more than 1.1 million Americans. Today, HUD announced nearly $9 million in HOPWA funding help address the basic needs of these vulnerable citizens. Seven cities and organizations will use this money to deliver permanent and transitional housing and support services to families and individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.
