California: AIDS Emergency Fund Offers Katrina Response

September 22, 2005

The AIDS Emergency Fund and Breast Cancer Emergency Fund recently announced that they are waiving proof of residency requirements for Katrina evacuees to obtain grant assistance. AEF and BCEF usually also require confirmation of diagnosis and income verification before issuing up to $600 for rent, utilities, medical or other basic living costs. In lieu of residency, AEF and BCEF are accepting referrals from St. Mary's Hospital or the American Red Cross office in San Francisco, two city registration points for evacuees. For more information, telephone 415-558-6999, ext. 1.
