Grant will help pay for AIDS housing in Tucson

Tucson will receive $13.3 million from five Department of Housing and Urban Development programs to serve HIV-positive people, produce affordable housing, help the homeless, and provide low-income families with down-payment assistance to purchase a home. "These funds will serve as a catalyst for low-income families trying to cross the threshold into home ownership and reinforces our commitment to rebuilding entire communities," said HUD secretary Alphonso Jackson.
