NMAS strives to prevent homelessness by making housing available to eligible clients. This is done through:
Financial assistance provided by the HOPWA program to meet the costs of shelter
Placing clients in housing owned by NMAS
The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program (HOWPA) allows NMAS, as funds are available, to provide eligible clients with financial assistance for mortgage, rent, and utilities costs.
An individual seeking HOPWA assistance is not required to be a client of NMAS but must be able to prove HIV+ status.
We currently provide various housing options to people who qualify.
NMAS’ four townhomes, two single-bedroom and two two-bedroom units, will be made available to eligible working families. These townhomes are currently full.
NMAS owns and operates a 10-unit apartment complex in Downtown Albuquerque for those clients who are at or below 30% of area median income. These apartments are currently full but clients interested in the apartments can put their name on the waiting list by filling out an application with their case manager. When an apartment becomes available, NMAS housing committee will interview clients on the waiting list and make a decision based on level of need and eligibility. Filling out an application does not guarantee residency in these apartments.
If you are interested in accessing any of our housing services, please talk to your Case Manager directly.
