                Dallas, TX. –  Today, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded critical emergency COVID-19 funding to the following Dallas entities for their Ryan White HIV/AIDS Programs:

  • Dallas County: $970,865
  • Parkland Health & Hospital System: $207,966
  • The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center: $78,875

 “This significant funding will ensure that our Dallas communities can access critical HIV-related care during this coronavirus pandemic, and I proudly advocate for patients and their families to have the medical and community resources they need,” said Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. “I am honored to support Dallas County, Parkland, and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in their efforts to provide comprehensive and quality health care services to many of our vulnerable residents.”

 The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, essential support services, and medications for low-income people living with HIV who are uninsured and undeserved. The Program funds grants to states, cities/counties, and local community-based organizations to provide care and treatment services to people living with HIV to improve health outcomes and reduce HIV transmission among hard-to-reach populations.
