The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) program is HUD funding dedicated to the housing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. DHCD administers the program by granting funds to nonprofits and local governments to provide housing and services that benefit low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families.

For additional information on the overall conditions and progress made related to the administration of the State’s homeless programs, please see the following report: Virginia’s Homeless Programs 2017-18 Program Year Report.
