ARIZONA: Grants Help Those with HIV/AIDS




 

Daily Miner (11.27.12) Aids Weekly Plus

Mohave County in Arizona is currently in its sixth year of providing funding for housing and medical assistance to individuals with HIV or AIDS through grant money. According to Housing and Community Revitalization Manager Dave Wolf, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development assists the program for Mohave County through a voucher program. He noted that since the county began overseeing the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program in 2007, the program has received a total of $384,998. Beginning in 2007 with 15 families, HOPWA has since assisted 87 families and 160 individuals. During that same time period, the Mohave County Department of Health has also received $123,741 in funds from the Ryan White Program. The Health Department’s Nursing Services Manager, Christine Bronston, says that the goal of the Ryan White Program is to ensure that patients are on medications and that they see their healthcare providers, which is often difficult due to their life situations. For more information on HIV/AIDS, testing, or the Ryan White Program, contact Mohave County Ryan White Case Manager Marlo Kunze at (928)753-0714, ext. 4282.
