Over $1 Million Funds Given for Housing Assistance to People with HIV/AIDS in Ohio

Three organizations, Community AIDS Network in Portage and Summit counties; COMPASS Family in Mahoning County; and the AIDS Resource Center Ohio have received more than $1 million in federal funds.

These funds were supposed to provide housing assistance and limited case management services for Ohioans with HIV and AIDS.

The Ohio Development Services Agency said that the center would use the funds to provide housing services to those in Athens, Canton, Dayton, Lima, Mansfield, Marion, Toledo and the surrounding counties.

COMPASS Family will provide rental, mortgage and utility assistance and additional supportive services to people in Ashtabula, Columbiana, Jefferson, Mahoning, and Trumbull counties. The state says the Community AIDS Network will use its grant to operate Micah House and Harmony Place, which serve Ohioans living with HIV/AIDS.
