U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
In Los Angeles, the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation will receive a HOPWA renewal grant for $630,535. Funds will be used to continue the Los Angeles Consortium for Service-Coordinated AIDS Housing, a collaboration of four nonprofit agencies providing permanent, supportive housing to very low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS. The three other partner agencies are the Hollywood Community Housing Corporation, Project New Hope and the Skid Row Housing Trust. Funding supports an Enhanced Management Model program, as well as expand services that promote long-term residential stability with residential and vocational service coordinators and an on-site learning program focused on computer skills. The project makes use of life skills development, and employment training and placement opportunities with permanent affordable housing to reach residents in at least 468 units at 26 sites over this grant period.

MetLife 1st Place Award of Excellence in Affordable Housing 

The case study is one of six featured in the 2001 Enterprise Foundation publication Metropolitan Life Foundation Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing: Case Studies of the Award Winners in Supportive Housing and Property and Asset Management.
This case study features Jack Plimpton New Hope Courtyard Apartments, 14 units of permanent, rental apartments for previously homeless individuals with HIV/AIDS and their families, in Los Angeles. The developer, Project New Hope, won a first-place award in the 2001 Metropolitan Life Foundation Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing. Project New Hope has a bilingual resident services coordinator who provides services to residents, 60 percent of whom are Hispanic. Services offered include the development of a resident service plan to assess the social and health conditions of the resident; a living skills assessment; development of a career plan, which includes providing career development tools and job placement; on-site computer classes; a remote Learning Center where computer skills needed to go back to work are taught; and Smart Spending workshops that teach money management. This program has achieved a successful balance of providing affordable independent housing for residents living with HIV/AIDS and their families and offering supportive services through staff and linkages to other organizations.
