Michigan: Saginaw Organization Receives $123,000 for HIV Work

February 26, 2013

The Michigan Department of Community Health HIV/AIDS Prevention and Intervention Section awarded nearly $2.5 million in funding to 16 nongovernmental and community-based organizations to provide evidence-based HIV prevention services. One of the recipient organizations, Hearth Home, Saginaw, received $122,956, which is expected to be awarded annually through 2016. The funding's purpose is to help Michigan's populations at greatest risk for contracting or transmitting HIV, including men who have sex with men, HIV-infected individuals, injecting drug users, and heterosexual persons whose partners are at high risk or HIV-infected. The awarded funding supports programs focused on African Americans, particularly young adults disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS in Michigan. Hearth Home will provide HIV testing and referral, targeted HIV counseling, individual and group-level education, and community-level interventions designed to change norms around HIV risk behaviors and stigma.
