Housing Opportunities for
Person With Aids (HOPWA)

The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program supports housing and other services for low-income persons with AIDS or HIV, and their families. 

The program provides funding for rental and mortgage assistance, utility payments, resource identification, technical assistance, and other supportive services.   

The program is administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) through eligible nonprofit organizations and governmental housing agencies or HOPWA Project Sponsors.

Eligibility for family or individual assistance is determined through a pre-screening and application process managed by the HOPWA Project Sponsors.   If you or someone you know could benefit from this program, please contact a Project Sponsors in your area (see Virginia HOPWA funding Areas Link below).
