Best Syndication News

One can’t help but feel for people who lost their homes to foreclosure. The past months have left many without houses, and it’s still taking away other people’s homes.

It’s even worse to see sick people who, despite their condition, are forced out of their residences. Losing their homes would make it more difficult for these people to take care of their health, like those who are inflicted with HIV/AIDS. For them, losing their health to the HIV virus is as hard as losing their dwellings to foreclosure.

It’s fortunate that there is money allotted for building houses specifically for people suffering from AIDS. The government, through its housing arm the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), is giving a housing grant worth $1.4 million to the Los Angeles Housing Department to provide permanent housing to people with the disease.

HUD‘s Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program or HOPWA will give the federal grant to the City of Los Angeles to help persons with AIDS concentrate more on getting treatment instead of worrying about where they will stay.

This money will definitely be a great deal not only for those who are ill but for their own families as well. No longer would they have to think about where to find money to pay for next month’s rent once they have their own homes. They can just spend the money on medication and other more important expenses.

HOPWA still has more to give. There are 18 other local programs all over the country which will benefit from their grants. More people with HIV/AIDS will get permanent housing in the future because the program has allotted a total of $19.4 million for the project. Because of this, getting better will be easier for people with AIDS all over the United States.

Housing Assistance Network http://new.housingassistancenetwork.com > - is a site that aims to help those who are in the low to moderate income brackets find financial assistance for housing, help in acquiring a new home, or grant programs from both state and non-government institutions.
