The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently announced that more than $2.2 billion in grants were awarded in fiscal 2014 to state and local governments, as well as community-based organizations, under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program.
These funds are aimed to help people affected by HIV infection receive the medical treatment and support services that are not fully covered by other forms of health care insurance. Part B awards to states and territories totaled nearly $1.3 billion. Below is a chart of North Carolina’s award and neighboring states.
