TPAN loses 77% of Ryan White Minority AIDS Initiative grant

Test Positive Aware Network, an AIDS organization in Chicago, has been informed that it is losing 77% of its federal Ryan White-Minority AIDS Initiative grant, resulting in a loss of more than $125,000 to the agency, the Chicago Free Press reports. The grant was used to provide HIV treatment adherence support to people of color. Chicago health department officials say the cut was based on an overall federal funding reduction to the Chicago area by 53%. However, TPAN officials claim that other local agencies that share in the minority AIDS grants saw funding cuts of only about 3%. The local Ryan White Title I Planning Council, which allocates the federal grants to local AIDS organizations, says TPAN still receives the largest amount of funding from the Minority AIDS Initiative grant.
