The Health Resources and Services Administration yesterday awarded cities, counties, states and community organizations $2.21 billion in fiscal year 2021 grants to support medical and support services, including medications, for people with low income who have HIV. 

"For more than three decades, HHS has driven federal efforts to end the HIV epidemic in our country and improve health outcomes for people with HIV," said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. "These funds support viral suppression that saves lives, reduces health disparities, and slows the spread of HIV.”
