Thirteen HIV/AIDS agencies throughout Indiana received emergency grants totaling $85,000 from the Indiana AIDS Fund to help maintain emergency housing, transportation, food distribution, medical care, and other services through the end of the year, the Indianapolis Star reports. This is the second year the fund has awarded the Gregory R. Powers Direct Emergency Financial Assistance grants. Last year, about $39,000 was distributed.
"Since we were able to more than double the grant amount in only our second year, more clients will get access to support they desperately need," said Keith Norwalk, president of the fund.
Among the grant recipients are four organizations operating in Indianapolis--Clarian Health Partners Life Care, the Damien Center, Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church Foundation, and Wishard Memorial Hospital Infectious Disease Clinic.
