The announcement of the AIDS moves came even as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Congress members from the Ryan White cities were preparing to announce current year grants—and, ironically, as the first hearings for reauthorization of the five-year-old CARE Act were getting underway. In a statement announcing a $4.5 million grant for Harris County author- cuts in AIDS funding would hurt the Houston area badly. "And, though there is a very mean-spiriled movement by some opponents in ihe House to slash funding for various AIDS programs, I am prepared to fight their efforts," she stated. 'AIDS is an epi demic.it can affect anyone, rich o poor, black or white, gay or straight The federal government cannot abdicate its life-preserving respon sibility that it acknowledged whet the Ryan White Act was passed in 1990.' Connnie Merhley of the Harris County Health Department's HIV Services Division, confirmed that the proposed cuts could threaten some currenl year funds under Ryan White. However, she said she did not know specifically is or how Houston's percentage would be affected. "We're deeply concerned," said Merhley. who said local administrators at first believed the 1995 funds were safe. The elimination of HOPWA. Merhley said, "will be devastating" for local organizations involved in AIDS housing. Tom Combs, who oversees AIDS housing programs for the city of Houston Department of Planing and Community Development, said HOPWA has been the key source of funding for pro grams providing both housing assistance and rent/financial assistance in the Houston area. "It's my understanding that we are secure through 1995," Combs said; however, he noted, he is now working on pulling together a plan to deal with the likelihood that HOPWA will ultimately be rolled into a block grant with other housing programs. "Our challenge will be to develop a plan to make sure that the AIDS need is addressed," he said. "When the funds come to the city (as a block grant), we're lumped together with everyone else.. .and everyone will also be vying for a smaller piece of the pie."
