Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids
The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program is designed to provide resources and incentives to devise long-term comprehensive strategies for meeting the housing needs of low-income persons with AIDS or related diseases and their families. HOPWA funds may be used to assist all forms of housing designed to prevent homelessness through direct housing assistance, supportive services, and other program activities. Eligible persons and programs must reside within the Paradise Eligible Metropolitan Statistical Area, consisting of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Boulder City, Henderson, Blue Diamond, Mesquite, Searchlight, Moapa, Overton, Bunkerville, Cal-Nev-Ari, Coyote Springs, Indian Springs, Jean, Laughlin, Logandale, Sloan and unincorporated Clark County. The Request for Proposal (RFP) invites qualified organizations to submit an application for an assessment of their organizational structure, staffing, their organization’s ability to meet the scope of work, and relevant experience. *Please note that this RFP is for a two-year grant period.
