New York: Dutchess Gets Cash to Help HIV/AIDS Patients

October 3, 2007

Dutchess County Executive William Steinhaus recently announced the county is receiving a $103,571 federal Ryan White Minority AIDS Initiative grant. "This additional funding will help us to continue to enhance and develop necessary services to help all those impacted by HIV/AIDS," said Steinhaus. Blacks account for a disproportionate 46 percent of local HIV cases, compared to 28 percent for Hispanics, and 24 percent for whites, said Dr. Michael Caldwell, county health commissioner. The Ryan White grant will help the county provide a seamless network of care for all those affected by HIV/AIDS, he said.
