Annually, the City of San José receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program. The program is exclusively dedicated to the housing needs of people living with HIV / AIDS.
Under the HOPWA program, HUD makes grants to local communities, States, and nonprofit organizations for projects that benefit low-income persons medically diagnosed with HIV / AIDS. The City of San José selects its grantees through a competitive process that provides such services as tenant based rental assistance, support services to clients with HIV / AIDS, and assistance with identifying affordable housing.
