The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced that more than 1,200 extremely low-income people living with HIV/AIDS will continue to receive permanent housing as a result of nearly $33 million in grants it is awarding, according to a HUD statement. Annually, these grants will provide permanent supportive housing so that recipients can manage their health and access needed supportive services such as case management and employment training. The funding is offered through the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS Program (HOPWA), and it will renew support of 28 local programs in 17 states.
