Financial Assistance

The Housing and Emergency Financial Assistance (EFA) programs focus on addressing financial barriers (housing and utility payments) that restrict a client’s ability to address their medical needs.

Offering Financial Support To Those Living With HIV

The Housing and EFA programs provide emergency financial assistance to households experiencing utility shutoff (past due bills), eviction, need for assistance with first month’s rent for a new move.

This type of assistance is designed to help clients living with HIV stay engaged or to reengage in medical care. When an applicant does not meet the criteria of our programs, we work with our network to connect the client to additional resources.
