access to Housing from Prevention to long-term support is needed

We see no path towards ending the HIV epidemic in the United States without addressing the need for safe, appropriate, & affordable housing for people at-risk and diagnosed with HIV. 

01

Prevention & Testing

  • PrEP for at high risk priority populations experiencing homelessness.
  • When persons come in for an HIV test, assess their housing status.
  • Connect at high risk priority populations experiencing homelessness to housing programs within HUD.

02

After Diagnosis

Within 3 days, ensure the newly diagnosed individual is connected to housing through one of the funding streams:

  • Ryan White funds can be used for up to 24 months for emergency and temporary housing.
  • HOPWA funds for emergency through permanent supportive housing.
  • HUD programs (i.e. Homeless Assistance Program, Housing Choice Vouchers).

03

Long-Term Support

  • HOPWA funds for TBRA, STRMU, PHP, and supportive services
  • Housing Choice Vouchers and other HUD programs for PLWHA who don’t need supportive services.
  • Medicare/Medicaid for aging populations
  • Work with higher-functioning clients to become self-sufficient
