Two Hawaii nonprofits were awarded a total $2.8 million in federal grants for HIV/AIDS housing programs.
The money came through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) “Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program.”
It was awarded to Honolulu-based Gregory House Programs and the Maui AIDS Foundation.
"Annually, these grants will provide permanent supportive housing for those households so they can manage their health and access needed supportive services such as case management and employment training," HUD said in a statement Friday.
The grants were among $32.9 million that went to programs in 17 states.
