HRSA Announces New Policy Action to Improve Access to Housing for People With HIV

HRSA Deputy Administrator Jordan Grossman speaking at the Advancing Housing, Health, and Social Care Partnerships Conference

On Wednesday, June 26, HRSA announced new policy action to facilitate access to housing for people with HIV served by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients. The new guidance enables—for the first time—the use of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funds to cover housing security deposits for eligible clients. This guidance advances critical elements of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy announced by President Biden and the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. Initiative and addresses a key barrier that has been raised by patients and advocates.

HRSA Deputy Administrator Jordan Grossman announced this guidance during the Advancing Housing, Health, and Social Care Partnerships Conference, which is bringing together federal agencies, states, and housing and services organizations across the country participating in the HRSA-supported Health and Housing Initiative, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness ALL INside Initiative, and the HHS and HUD-supported Housing and Services Partnership Accelerator.
