Frist announces AIDS housing funds for Tennessee
August 05 2004 12:00 AM ET
While helping build a Habitat for Humanity home in Nashville, Senate majority leader Bill Frist last week announced that eight Tennessee communities will receive $78 million from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Frist said the funding--a 50% increase for the state over last year's levels--will provide housing for HIV-positive people, will help produce affordable housing, and will assist with down payments for homes for low-income families. The bulk of the money is disbursed through Community Development Block Grants and will go to Bristol, Cleveland, Jackson, Knox County, Memphis, Morristown, Murfreesboro, and Shelby County as well as the state government.
