NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The city of Nashua, New Hampshire, and Harbor Homes, Inc., are getting more than $1.9 million in federal funds to help 45 low-income people living with HIV and AIDS and their families.

The funding is being offered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program. It’s part of more than $35.8 million being awarded nationally.

Harbor Homes, Inc., which is receiving over $494,000 over three years, will continue providing housing assistance to persons living with HIV and AIDS in Hillsborough County, and in Derry, Windham, and Londonderry in Rockingham County. The program includes a collaborative partnership with the Southern New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Task Force to provide program participants with housing case management, counseling support, and auxiliary services to sustain housing stability. The program will serve three households annually with short-term, mortgage, rent and utility assistance and 11 households annually with tenant-based rental assistance.
