Emergency Financial Assistance

programs4The Emergency Financial Assistance program is designed to empower clients so they can achieve and maintain a positive quality of life by providing need-based short-term financial assistance. This includes:

  • Housing assistance to prevent eviction.
  • Aid with utilities to avoid disconnection of electricity, water, and gas.
  • Supermarket vouchers for HIV-specific and HAART-indicated foods.
  • Subsidies for non-prescription wellness items including anti-nausea medications, nutritional supplements, and incontinency supplies.

Alliance’s HOPWA Central Coordinating Agency (CCA) currently works with pre-approved housing specialists from local, predesignated community-based organizations serving impoverished persons living with HIV/AIDS to obtain housing-related financial assistance for their eligible clients. The HOPWA Central Coordinating agency (located at our Eagle Rock Office) coordinates and processes applications on a county-wide basis for Permanent Housing Placement (PHP), Short-Term Rental, Mortgage and Utility Assistance (STRMU), Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) and Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) grants.
