Aids Housing and Information Project (AHIP)

AHIP federal funds are managed and distributed though our community partner Eden I&R. They can provide up-to-date information on permanent housing that is reserved for persons living with HIV. They can help residents apply for other market-rate and/or subsidized housing. Eden I&R also provides referrals to a wide range of resources such as social services, health services and financial assistance available only to persons living with HIV.
