The Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded grants to 12 states, including $1.3 million to the Idaho Housing and Finance Association, to provide housing assistance to HIV-positive people and their families. IHFA will distribute the funds to seven service organizations in Idaho that have helped 178 people obtain long-term housing and provided temporary housing assistance to 216 other people and their families. Portland, Ore.'s Our House, Oregon's only residential facility with 24-hour care for people with AIDS, received a three-year, $1.3 million HUD grant. The agency plans to use the money to expand its facility in order to provide housing and care to an additional 14 AIDS patients and to provide rental assistance to AIDS patients living in their own apartments.
