Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids (HOPWA) is a federally funded program providing housing assistance and supportive services for low-income people with HIV/AIDS and related diseases, and their families. People with AIDS and other HIV-related illnesses often face challenges in meeting personal, medical, and housing costs during their illness. HOPWA funds can be used for an array of activities including:

  • Housing assistance, supportive services and program development costs.
  • Operation and maintenance of facilities and community residences.
  • Short-term payments to prevent homelessness.

Services are delivered through local government and nonprofit organizations throughout the state except King and Snohomish counties, who receive a separate HOPWA grant, and Clark and Skamania counties who receive funding through the City of Portland’s HOPWA grant.
