Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA)

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.

Applicants that are selected to receive HOPWA funds will be considered sub-recipients and will also be required to comply with the requirements related to “sub-recipients” outlined in the RFQ that can be found here.

An interested applicant must submit its application via email to IHCDA no later than the deadline of May 20, 2019 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time.  Faxed and mailed applications will NOT be accepted.  Applications received after the deadline will NOT be accepted.
