Five Alabama AIDS groups will share $1.4 million in grants from AIDS United's Southern Regional Expansion of Access and Capacity to Address HIV/AIDS, or REACH, initiative. The funding, issued in response to reports showing the South has the nation's highest HIV death rates, will support a range of efforts, including outreach to Hispanics and improving housing options for those living with the virus. The grantees are the Birmingham-based AIDS Alabama, Birmingham AIDS Outreach, Collaborative Solutions and the Southern AIDS Coalition, and Legal Services Alabama Inc., which is based in Montgomery.
