New Jersey: Paterson Gets $4.1 Million Grant for AIDS/HIV Patients

March 12, 2012

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded $4.1 million to help Paterson's Health Department provide medical care and living assistance to more than 1,000 HIV/AIDS patients. The amount is up by nearly $400,000 from last year, said Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-N.J.). Donna Nelson-Ivy, director of Paterson's Health and Human Services Department, said the city's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program helped 1,358 people last year, and this year's total may surpass that figure.
