In 2013, the City of San Jose received notification of funding approval to renew its Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) competitive grant for an additional three years.
The HOPWA – PSH program supports specialized models in outreach and service delivery, including efforts that target help to persons who have been homeless or are at extreme risk of becoming homeless. The awarded programs are designed to increase coordination with the homeless assistance grant programs as well as other federal resources provided at the local level. These grants offer innovations in HIV care to increase job readiness and employment opportunities for persons in stabilized care.
The City was awarded a HOPWA permanent supportive housing renewal grant of $1,309,810 over three years to continue providing 19 households with Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) and supportive services to 75 households in Santa Clara County. The project is a joint collaboration with The Health Trust in providing an array of supportive services including case management, substance abuse recovery, housing search, housing placement, public benefits counseling, and independent living education.
