These grants will fund projects that provide housing assistance and supportive services to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS who are also victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, including any minors and dependents living with such persons. Each successful applicant under this initiative will receive two separate one-time only, non-renewable grants from HUD: (1) a HOPWA grant, and (2) a Transitional Housing Assistance Program grant. HOPWA grant funds will be used for housing assistance for program participants, coordination and planning activities, and grant management and administration. Transitional Housing Assistance grant funds will be used to provide supportive services for program participants. As a result of project efforts, communities will be assisted in the development of a Housing and Services (HAS) Model to be issued at the end of the third year of operation. This HAS Model document will be an administrative function and should provide clear lessons learned and best practices for providing housing assistance and appropriate supportive services for persons living with HIV/AIDS who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Each HAS Model will be shared with the public, and lessons learned through these grantee efforts will help inform national and community policy and actions.
