Fund HOPWA at $600 Million for FY22

Fund HOPWA at $600M for FY22

Congress is working on funding allocations for HIV programs, including HOPWA. This year, we are asking for a 170M increase so that we can expand housing options for low-income people living with HIV/AIDS. The $600M also ensures that almost all grantees are flat-funded due to the new HOPWA formula. It is imperative we all reach out to the Senate NOW!
