The HIV Housing Advocacy Program (HAP) prevents homelessness by providing rental/mortgage payments to a participant's landlord to help the participant avoid a housing crisis. Participants also receive ongoing support to establish and meet not only their immediate financial needs, but also their long-term housing goals and achieve housing stability.
HIV positive individuals or their advocates must apply for a HAP payment through their HIV case manager. If an individual is not currently receiving HIV case management, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago will provide an HIV case management referral. The HIV case manager will assess the client's housing needs. Based on their findings, a HAP payment can be requested.
