New York AIDS groups lose millions in wake of terrorist attacks
from the ADVOCATE
So far, the review has revealed that most AIDS organizations in the city experienced "significant disruptions" in services, including office closures, problems with communications and transportation, and restricted client and staff access. The health department expects these agencies to incur additional unexpected expenses, including those associated with providing mental health care, in the coming weeks. Health department officials anticipate that money from federal and state relief agencies will be given to groups that have suffered significant losses during the past two weeks. The department's final assessment is expected next week.
