Aids Alabama gets $1 million

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - AIDS Alabama is getting $1 million in federal stimulus funds to provide housing to HIV-positive people in the state.

The organization says housing services will be offered statewide to low-income individuals who are HIV-positive and need financial assistance to prevent homelessness or to move from homelessness into permanent housing.

The Birmingham-based organization says services will include rental assistance, utility payment assistance, back rent, moving expenses, and emergency hotel vouchers.
