Grants funded under this initiative will advance HUDï¿½s implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS).
This NOFA also addresses the Departmentï¿½s Fiscal Year 2010-2015 Strategic Plan and the Opening Doors Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
actions address goals to:
prevent and end homelessness; increase the supply of affordable housing; and increase the coordination of mainstream housing resources and other health and human services.
This NOFA announces funds available for projects that address both:
(1) direct housing assistance and service delivery to low income persons and families living with HIV/AIDS, including homeless individuals and families; and (2) comprehensive planning and coordination of local resources in meeting housing and service needs of the population.
As a result of project efforts, communities will be assisted in the development and use of an Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan (IHHP) to be issued at the end of the third year of operation.
The IHHP is an administrative function and should demonstrate local system changes in the delivery of housing and services.
Grantees are expected to provide housing assistance to eligible persons in their communities while concurrently examining and comprehensively integrating local services for coordinating and streamlining where possible the delivery of those services in your community.
