Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) administers the HOPWA
grant Program for Kentucky. The
Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Grant Program is funded by
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and provides
assistance to low-income individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and their family
members living with them. All activities
must comply with applicable HOPWA regulations, which are found in 24
HOPWA funding provides
housing assistance and related supportive services as part of HUD’s
Consolidated Planning initiative that works in partnership with communities and
neighborhoods in managing federal funds appropriated to HIV/AIDS programs. This
focus on providing housing assistance and related support services for
HOPWA-eligible clients serves to reduce the risks of homelessness for this
population and increase access to appropriate healthcare and other support.
