In September 2011, HUD awarded nearly $9 million in Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) competitive grant funding to seven Integrated HIV/AIDS Housing Plan (IHHP) grantees in communities across the country. The IHHP grantees were funded to provide housing assistance and supportive services to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and their families. In addition to providing housing and services to eligible HOPWA beneficiaries, the grantees received funding to improve the coordination of HIV housing and services in their communities and streamline access to other existing local services and resources for PLWHA through community-wide strategies.
The grantees submitted a final IHHP report at the end of the grant period. The reports detailed each grantee’s successes and challenges in their coordination and integration efforts, and outlined the systems changes to the delivery of housing and services that occurred over the grant period. Collaborative Solutions, Inc. developed a final report that highlights the strategies and outcomes for six of the IHHP grantees.
