The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a notice of intent to fund demonstration projects focused on low-income victims of domestic violence living with HIV/AIDS.

Through the proposed demonstration, HUD will award grant funds to successful applicants to provide transitional and other temporary rental housing assistance and supportive services to low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking. Successful applicants will be required to partner with local domestic violence and sexual assault service providers for client outreach and engagement and for comprehensive supportive services to ensure client success in the program.

HUD shared the announcement at a White House event to commemorate National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.

The purpose of the notice is to solicit public comment on an exploratory grant program. All comments received will be considered in the development of a Notice of Funding Availability that will explain requirements for the Violence Against Women Act/Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Project Demonstration, detail project selection criteria, and solicit applications.
