This brief front-and-back handout provides an overview of the rights of people living with HIV to obtain housing without discrimination under federal law, and to housing assistance under federally funded programs. Safe, stable, and affordable housing is not only a basic human right, but vital to the survival of people living with HIV. Advocates and people living with HIV who seek a deeper discussion of the legal issues that arise with regard to HIV and housing should also consult the Center for HIV Law and Policy's primer The Housing Rights of People Living with HIV/AIDS.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy is a national resource and advocacy organization working to advance the rights of people affected by HIV. We combine an online HIV Policy Resource Bank, a creative national advocacy agenda, and case assistance focused on systems and institutions with significant impact on marginalized communities.
