New Jersey: HIV Assistance Agencies Will Share $3.7 Million Grant
August 16, 2011
Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-Paterson), announced on Aug. 11 that 16 Passaic and Bergen county AIDS service organizations will share $3.7 million in funds from the Ryan White CARE Act.
"If you don't treat AIDS cases, it spreads," Pascrell told a dozen people at the Well of Hope, a Paterson nonprofit that offers needle exchange and other services. The funding is welcome news for the agency, whose office has been burglarized three times in the past two months.
