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 challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender and economic justice.
