West Virginia to Get $2 Million in Federal AIDS Funding

April 22, 2003

As part of a $1 billion award for 2003 being divided among all U.S. states and territories, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson has announced that almost $2 million in federal AIDS funding is heading to West Virginia. The money will pay for medical care, support services and prescription drugs for people with HIV/AIDS. Part of the federal funding is based on the number of people with AIDS in each state or territory; other portions of the grant are part of the Minority AIDS Initiative, which is based on the number of minority individuals living in an area during a two-year period. The grants are awarded under the Ryan White CARE Act. "Poverty unfortunately is a common symptom of AIDS, but these grants to states help us ensure that people with AIDS can get needed care and services," Thompson said in a statement on April 10.
