I am writing to request that you vehemently oppose Governor Corbett’s proposed funding cuts to the grants for AIDS program in the 2011-2012 state budget (pg. 9, row 274). These cuts would be devastating to the approximately 30,900 people* living with this disease in Pennsylvania, and affect the one in five people living with HIV and unaware of his or her status.**
Why is this important?
AIDS service organizations have endured over a decade of flat funding and 3 years of dramatic budget cuts, stretching their resources over an ever-growing population in need of HIV prevention education. The current PA House Republican budget proposal for 2011-2012 purposes an additional 25.4% cut in the AIDS Programs.
