The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) is a grant-funded program that provides housing funding for non-profit agencies that specialize in assisting Hoosiers with AIDS/HIV and their families. The HOPWA program is available within 77 of Indiana's 92 counties and is based on the number of Hoosiers with AIDS/HIV and is only awarded to those agencies that show as a part of their mission a focus on servicing these Persons. The remaining counties receive their funds through Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Louisville. There are specific requirements your non-profit must adhere to in order to receive the HOPWA funding.
