News in Brief: California


Advocate (06/02/92) No. 604, P. 24

Los Angeles county has been denied $1 million in its annual federal AIDS funding this year because county health authorities were too slow to distribute the $4.5 million in last year's allocation, officials of the AIDS Health Care Foundation alleged. The money was distributed under the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Act, said the foundation's officials. Robert Frangenberg, head of the county AIDS office, recognized the county did not receive its total request under the program this year and conceded that distribution of last year's allocation was delayed for many months. However, he said the delay did not cause the reduction of funds. In addition, he denied that the delay was a result of mismanagement.
