Federal Housing Grants to Assist Low-Income People With HIV

A $19.4 million housing grant is being distributed to 15 states under the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program to help positive people with short-term rent, mortgage and utility assistance, the Burlington Free Press reports.

“These grants are quite literally a lifeline for those struggling to find a decent home while trying to manage complex drug therapies,” U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development secretary Steve Preston said in a news release.

According to the article, Vermont—a state known for high housing costs, will receive its fifth three-year federal grant—totaling $1.4 million—which will provide housing assistance to HIV positive people who have annual incomes that are less than 80 percent of the area’s median income and who are connected to one of the state’s four participating AIDS service organizations.
