15 HUD Continuum of Care Housing Funds The Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force is granted funds from another HUD program by Allegheny County for transitional and permanent housing for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. The 4 different programs and persons served are detailed on the next slide.
16 HUD Continuum of Care Housing Pathways (Transitional Housing) – 10 individuals Choice I (Permanent Housing) – 10 individuals and 5 families Choice II (Permanent Housing) – 15 units with 23 beds Choice III (Permanent Housing) – 7 individuals and 2 families
17 HUD Continuum of Care Housing Waiting List – About 50 clients. Waiting list is dynamic because there may be vacancies and no one available to fill them. Waiting list may result from not having a particular type of housing available, for example, family units. Waiting list may also result from client not being ready to be in permanent housing.
