Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland) announced today that $2.5 million in federal funding has been made available for HIV services in Alameda County.

The money from the Department of Health and Human Services will be used to enhance access to care for low-income individuals and families as well as strengthen strategies to reach minority populations.

"Alameda County health providers are leaders in the domestic fight against HIV/AIDS and I am pleased that Alameda County Health Care Services Agency has been selected for this critical funding that will expand and improve efforts to combat HIV/AIDS in the East Bay," said Lee.

Lee represents California's 13th Congressional District, which includes Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland, Piedmont and San Leandro.
