I.   PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND:

The purpose of this notice is to guide Participating
Jurisdictions (PJs) and private nonprofit organizations in using
HOME funds together with HUD Continuum of Care homeless
assistance funds under the Stewart B. McKinney Act programs.  The
Office of Community Planning and Development also administers the
Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program which
is designed to provide housing and services to persons with
HIV/AIDS, and can be used to prevent homelessness among persons
with HIV/AIDS, and may assist persons who are homeless.
Throughout this notice the term "homeless and HIV/AIDS-assistance
programs" will refer to all of the above programs administered by
the Office of Community Planning and Development.

This notice illustrates the uses of and compatibility between
HOME and the homeless and HIV/AIDS assistance programs and
highlights opportunities that can maximize the effect of
combining program funds. The notice is designed to expand the
reader's familiarity with the McKinney Act programs, the HOPWA
program, and the HOME Program.  It begins with informing the
reader of the various programs' intents and their requirements.
Readers with a working knowledge of these programs may skip the
following overview and go directly to Section III entitled USING
HOME AND HOMELESS AND HIV/AIDS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
RESOURCES on page 17.

Readers are reminded that this Notice serves only as a guide to
possible ways of combining the programs' funds.  In so doing,
only a portion of the applicable rules and regulations are
highlighted.  Therefore, the latest edition of each program's
regulations should be reviewed during the planning stages.  To
ensure that you have the latest edition, check with the local HUD
Community Planning and Development Office.
