A Kentucky HIV/AIDS clinic that was originally slated to receive thousands in federal funding has lost the grant after the funds were redistributed to larger organizations.
Matthew 25, a regional clinic in Henderson, Ky., was supposed to receive $240,000 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to Bay Windows. Instead, the funds went to other organizations, but the group did receive a $110,000 grant from the state government. The money will go toward keeping the clinic's full-time prevention staffers employed.
Sally Welch told Bay Windows the clinic will hold fundraisers to balance its budget.
According to its website, Matthew 25 started as a volunteer operation in 1996 through a local church. It is currently one of two comprehensive HIV/AIDS clinics serving Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky.
