The Seattle Human Services Department has released the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Investment Plan. The plan is based on the significant work of the HIV Housing Leadership Collaborative, which convened in Spring 2012 to find ways to expand the inventory of housing available to low-income people with HIV/AIDS, streamline the process for accessing and retaining housing, and increase the leverage and impact of HOPWA funds.
The plan provides a road map for 2013 through 2016 with a shift in investment priorities, principles, and outcomes while meeting the federal HOPWA goals of homelessness prevention and housing access and stability. The plan will inform two Request for Investment processes to implement the new priorities.
We welcome your thoughts and feedback on the plan by February 21, 2013. For more information, please contact Kim von Henkle, Seattle Human Services Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-615-1573.
