San Francisco's AIDS Legal Referral Panel has received a grant from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development to fight illegal housing discrimination against people with HIV/AIDS, reports the Bay Area Reporter. The grant consists of $68,000 to be awarded over an 18-month period.
"Certainly, having one of [the] tightest housing markets in the country helped to make the compelling case that what housing is available must be accessible to people with disabilities, including people with HIV," said ALRP executive director Bill Hirsh. ALRP is one of 99 groups across the country to be funded to help fight housing discrimination, to help HIV-positive people find and maintain adequate housing, and to promote awareness and knowledge of how fair housing laws apply to people with HIV/AIDS.
