Press Release

The Bronx – Congressman José E. Serrano today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded a $355,000 grant to Bronx AIDS Services for an HIV Prevention project.

“Despite all the progress that has been made in recent decades, HIV/AIDS continues to be an issue that disproportionately affects urban areas, like the Bronx. This grant will help Bronx AIDS Services expand and improve their HIV prevention efforts geared toward young gay men of color, which in turn will reduce the incidence of this deadly disease in the Bronx. With these types of projects and efforts, we are educating young people on how to successfully prevent transmission and work towards the elimination of HIV/AIDS once and for all,” said Congressman Serrano.
