About the HOPWA Program

Having a stable living environment plays a major role in the health of people, including those with HIV.

Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) is a federally-funded program that helps people maintain stable housing, and have access to treatment and support services — which can all lead to better health.

In Florida, 11 regional agencies and six cities deliver HOPWA-funded housing services. If you need assistance to remain in your current housing or secure new housing, talk with your local HOPWA provider agency to find out if they can help you. In addition to the state HOPWA program, there are six city HOPWA programs administered locally.
