Minnesota AIDS Programs Survive Budget Cuts for Now

February 13, 2003

Officials of the Minnesota AIDS Project anticipated $1.2 million in state budget cuts to AIDS prevention efforts. But officials of the state Department of Health reworked the numbers the in last few days to ease the effect. Health Department spokesperson Buddy Ferguson said the $1.2 million in cuts announced last week will be restored with $400,000 in federal grant money, $385,000 in unspent subsidies to local public health agencies and $400,000 in grant cuts to those agencies. The AIDS Project, a statewide nonprofit agency, was expected to lose 40 percent of funding for its AIDSline, substantially reduce access to HIV testing and eliminate many counseling and street-outreach programs. It will lose some funding for educational and technical assistance it gives to state pharmacies.
