Unity Against Homelessness

Posted By on Tue, Jun 29, 2010 at 4:20 PM

Unity of Greater New Orleans is receiving an $804,912 grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide permanent housing to low-income people in the area living with HIV/AIDS so they can receive support services and manage their illness.

The funding is provided through HUD’s Housing Opportunities for persons with AIDS Program and is part of $30.2 million in grants awarded to 29 programs in 19 states to help HIV/AIDS patients.

In late April, the National Alliance to End Homelessness gave Unity of Greater New Orleans its 2010 Non-Profit Sector Award at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. The award is a top honor among homeless services. (The video was shown during the awards ceremony on April 22.)
