California Office of AIDS Notifies Local Programs of Funding Cut Amounts

August 20, 2009

The California Office of AIDS this week notified local municipalities of how it "intends to divvy up ... direct service cuts to AIDS care and HIV treatment and prevention programs," across the state, the Bay Area Reporter reports. "According to the documents released by state AIDS officials, Los Angeles and San Francisco, which also receive direct funding from federal AIDS dollars, will be allocated half of their new formula allocation they would have received from the state. The remaining half will be redistributed among 15 cities and counties that are also highly impacted by the AIDS epidemic," the article states. The Bay Area Reporter writes that "Los Angeles and San Francisco have the highest concentration of HIV cases anywhere in the state."  The story includes reaction from state and local advocates (Bajko, 8/20).
