RUPCO offers two forms of special assistance for households being impacted by a positive HIV diagnosis. Take a look at our introductory brochure, Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS here.
Long Term: Our long-term assistance program provides rental assistance similar to that of our Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program. Individuals/families must be referred by another agency, like Aids Related Community Services (ARCS) or Mid-Hudson Care Center. These agencies can provide an application or one may be requested by calling (845) 331-2140 ext. 307. Applications require referent signatures.
Short Term: Our short-term assistance program provides assistance in the form of back rent, back mortgage payments, first month’s rent, and back utility payments. Interested applicants must be referred by Aids Related Community Services or Mid-Hudson Care Center. Applications are available for pick up at 289 Fair Street, Kingston.
