About the Program

  • The goal of the program is to assist clients in achieving and maintaining housing stability so as to avoid homelessness and improve their access to, and engagement in, HIV care and treatment.
  • The program is designed to act as a bridge to long-term assistance programs, such as Section 8.
  • Participation in the program is voluntary and conditional and is not an entitlement program.
  • The program provides tenant based rental assistance to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS through rental subsidy payments.
  • Additionally, the program assists clients in locating and/or securing suitable rental housing, identifying other related housing and community based resources that may be available to clients, and providing housing information and referral to those housing resources.

Funding and Administration

  • The Oregon Housing Opportunities in Partnership program is funded by grants received from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is designed to assist people living with HIV/AIDS in creating a continuum of stable, sustainable housing.
  • The Oregon Health Authority, HIV Care and Treatment Program, directly administers the program in addition to the Ryan White Part B Program.

Because the program is funded through federal grants, ongoing program assistance is subject to the continued availability of HOPWA funds.
