July 27, 2021 – CDC Awards $117 Million to Advance Innovation and Health Equity in Federal Initiative to End HIV
CDC awarded $117 million to state and local health departments to help rebuild and begin to expand HIV prevention and treatment efforts as the U.S. continues to respond to COVID-19. The awards are part of the federal Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative, which funds 57 priority areas to expand and tailor key HIV prevention strategies to community needs. This is the second major round of CDC funding delivered to state and local health departments as part of the initiative and builds upon initial investments. The funds will be used to expand access to the initiative’s four major strategies and reduce health disparities.
