HOTMA’s effect on HOPWA: What grantees need to know
Posted on June 14, 2017
HUD just released a statement yesterday discussing the changes that will be made in HOPWA (Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS program) due to the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA).
One of the changes includes the OHH (Office of HIV/AIDS Housing) establishing this new set of values to operate from:
- “No person should become homeless as the result of HOPWA Modernization”
- “All funds should be used to meet the needs of eligible households, with no funds recaptured from grants”
- “Grants should ensure their project designs meet the changing needs of the modern HIV epidemic…“
The OHH is taking extended measures to inform grantees on these upcoming changes. These measures include a webinar happening in July, direct assistance for any grantees that are projected to be financially affected, the conducting of the HOPWA Institute, and a “Modernization Toolkit” that the program will offer to provide valuable resources to grantees and communities.
