World AIDS Day

Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS and Fair Housing

December 1 is World AIDS Day, an annual recognition of the impact of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic and an attempt to raise awareness to celebrate successes and encourage continued work to treat, study, and support HIV/AIDS efforts.

In the United States, many of the federal government offices and agencies dedicated to health and human services commemorate this health awareness day. The 2017 theme is “Increasing Impact Through Transparency, Accountability, and Partnerships.”

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development administers the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Program; this is the only federal program dedicated to the housing needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. You can learn more about eligibility requirements, the rules/regulations, and other aspects of the program here: https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/hopwa/.

Discrimination based on HIV and AIDS is illegal; this includes the unlawful denial of housing or access to housing. Learn more about fair housing and anti-discrimination resources at:

Econometrica offers an array of housing and community development services, including those focused on public and affordable housing. Many of the municipalities and public housing agencies we have worked with offer programs and services through HOPWA funding.
