New HOPWA Factsheets on Addressing Changes in Formula Allocations

A set of ten factsheets are now available that highlight strategies grantees can adopt to address changes in their HOPWA formula grant resulting from HOPWA Modernization.

HOPWA Modernization came into effect in July 2016 through the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA) which changed the formula through which HOPWA funds are distributed to include people “living with HIV” among other changes.

The factsheets include discussions on how to use HOPWA Eligible Activities in new or creative ways including:

  • How to use Permanent Housing Placement (PHP) with Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA)
  • TBRA versus Short Term Mortgage and (STMRU)
  • TBRA with an increasing formula award
  • TRBA with a decreasing formula award

In addition, there are factsheets that highlight special challenges in rural communities, recommendations to coordinate with the local Continuum of Care (CoC), and how to design programs with a Housing First and Harm Reduction component. View all ten factsheets.

The new factsheets are part of a series to support grantees and outline best practices and provide ongoing information to all HOPWA grantees and project sponsors. Additional factsheets will be added in the coming months. These resources are prepared by technical assistance providers and intended to help HOPWA grantees and project sponsors understand HOPWA program guidance. The contents of these factsheets, except when based on statutory or regulatory authority or law, do not have the force and effect of law and are not meant to bind the public in any way. These documents are intended only to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law or agency policies.
