Federal Government Awards $33 Million To HIV-AIDS Housing Programs


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that it would continue $33 million worth of funding for the permanent housing of over 1,200 low-income people living with HIV/AIDS.

“These grants offer housing, vital healthcare and hope to hundreds of households that combine to literally save lives,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. “Having stable housing can make all the difference to the health of someone living with HIV/AIDS who might otherwise be struggling to live on our streets.”

Most of the centers receiving this federal assistance are directed toward urban centers based on the number of AIDS cases reported to the CDC. New York City’s Bailey House, for example, will receive just over $1 million, while the City of Los Angeles Housing Department will receive $1.5 million.

Major ups to the Obama administration for supporting housing for some of the most deserving in the population.

      (gasp)The government giving money to sick people?!

      Don’t worry, JayKay! I will type your comment on this one for you. Please don’t leave your farm animals alone. Your goat might decide to start chewing on the strap on your beard made out of a carrot just for your anal pleasures.

      JayKay: “The government shouldn’t be giving money to people with AIDS. People with AIDS are whiny little bitches! How dare they complain about their ailing health. If I had AIDS, I would be so manly that I’d be able to cure it myself! And another thing, if they have HIV, then that means they got laid because let’s be honest, that’s really the only way for people to get HIV. The whole used needles / blood transfusion crap is just a conspiracy bein’ pushed by dem darn liberals who would rather believe in statistics and facts than good ol’ American hearsay. To summarize my point, people won’t get AIDS if they don’t get laid. Look at me, I’m as healthy as a horse.”

      There. I hope I did you proud. And remember, JayKay, I am doing all of this because I have fallen deeply and madly in love with you.

      YES! That’s right! I love you because nothing says sexy like a conservative guy who conforms to everything because he is too lazy to use his own brain.

      Well, whoever “JayKay” is, he needs a reality slap and fast. Blood-to-blood contact (sharing needles, JayKay) is the scientifically-proven (guys in white coats, with brains bigger than yours, JayKay) leading transmission vector (infection route, JayKay) for blood-borne pathogens (bugs in your blood, JayKay) such as HIV and Hepatitis C.

      Ugh! It continues to amaze me, in this day and age, that so many people are still crawling out from under the rock they were living under.

      Get the facts, or STFU.

      Someone who made a bad decision that caused him or her to contract AIDS shouldn’t be getting tax dollars from the rest of the population that made responsible decisions.

      Wow JW, I hope you don’t ever make a “bad decision”. It’d really suck if a smug peice of shit like you ever died of AIDS.
