If you are living with HIV/AIDS and are homeless or at risk of losing your housing, the Montrose Center can help you access a variety of resources to help you achieve stability. Through the federal Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program, the Montrose Center administers the following types of assistance to qualifying HIV+ individuals:
- short-term mortgage assistance
- short-term rental assistance
- short-term utility assistance
- extended rental assistance
- rent deposit assistance
In order to access HOPWA assistance, you must meet with a case manager who assess your eligibility and housing needs. Currently, there is a waiting list for HOPWA assistance; however, a case manager may also be able to help you identify and access other housing resources within the community.
