Client and Housing Assistance Programs

ACT assists people living with HIV/AIDS in meeting emergency expenses through the Client Assistance Fund (CAF), and with obtaining and maintaining housing through the Housing Assistance Fund (HAF).

PLEASE NOTE: The application procedures and forms provided below are for case managers. All applicants MUST apply for assistance through a case manager. If you don't have a case manager refer to this list of agencies that provide HIV/AIDS case management, or this list of agencies providing services in the Greater Hartford TGA.

For case managers seeking additional guidance on completing an application for CAF or HAF, view this informational presentation or send your questions to cafhaf@act-ct.org.

Client Assistance Fund (CAF)

The Client Assistance Fund is a set of services funded by the federal Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program for people living with HIV/AIDS. For Ryan White Part A, applicants must reside in Hartford, Tolland, or Middlesex county. View a list of towns covered by RW Part A Transitional Grant Area (TGA). For RW Part B, preference will be given to those applicants residing in Tolland County or outside of the Hartford TGA. Clients who have capped out of RW Part A funds will also be considered.

Applicants must apply for assistance through a case manager or social worker. If you don't have a case manager refer to this list of agencies that provide HIV/AIDS case management, or this list of agencies providing services in the Greater Hartford TGA.

Please Note: If the documentation is in CAREWare then the applicant only needs to send the request forms. In this case, we will need a CareWare referral and ACT will initiate clinical and service sharing requests.
