In August 2014, HIFASS through a consortium got a Cooperative Agreement (CA) of $9,666,082 funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS on Orphans and Vulnerable Children in region 3- Cross River and Ebonyi States (LOPIN3).

The objectives are to improve systems and structures at State, LGA and community levels to ensure provision of quality care, protection and support services to orphans and vulnerable children and their households. LOPIN 3 aims to reach 310,000 OVC in 52,000 households with comprehensive package of services by 2019. HIFASS through LOPIN 3 is building the capacity of Nigerian civil society and mobilizing the community to improve accessibility and quality of services for children orphaned and made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in Cross River and Ebonyi States using the tiered partnership approach. The implementation spans across 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Cross River State and 13 in Ebonyi state with a total of 196 wards.
