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.
CHLP fights stigma and discrimination at the intersection of HIV, race, health status, disability, class, sexuality and gender identity and expression, with a focus on criminal and public health systems. As part of this work, we support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change rooted in racial, gender and economic justice. We do this through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources.
