This Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) [CDFA # 1 4. 241] Notice announces Renewal Grant Application and Replacement Grant Application requirements for eligible expiring HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) grants.
Pursuant to the renewal authority provided by the Consolidated
Appropriations Act, 2019 (Pub.
116-6), and the renewal or replacement authority provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Pub.
116-260), the Department will renew or replace all eligible expiring HOPWA Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) grants that meet all program requirements and were initially funded under a HUD competition for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 or earlier FY funds.The new option to replace an eligible expiring HOPWA PSH grant is made possible through new authority provided for the FY21 funding for HOPWA under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 202 1. For the purposes of this Notice, the application to renew an existing HOPWA PSH renewal grant will be referred to as the “Renewal Grant Application.” The application to replace the existing HOPWA PSH renewal activities with new grant activities will be referred to as the “Replacement Grant Application.” All eligible FY21 renewal applicants are eligible to submit a Replacement Grant Application.
See Section XIII of this Notice for more information on the Replacement Grant Application process.
However, to assure HUD will be in a position to renew the expiring grant if the application to replace it does not meet the scoring threshold for funding, each applicant interested in applying to replace their current PSH grant must submit both a Renewal Grant Application and a Replacement Grant Application.
No Replacement Grant Applications will be reviewed without an accompanying Renewal Grant Application.
PLEASE READ NOTICE COMPLETELY FOR ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE.
