(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana State Department of Health has received a $26 million award from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration to provide services to individuals diagnosed with HIV.

It is the largest award for HIV services in Indiana history.

It will be used to increase treatment capacity for individuals with HIV by funding psychiatric nurse practitioners and mental health and addiction counselors.

It also will facilitate efforts to connect individuals with HIV to care sooner, which can reduce the risk of spreading disease, and help expand case management services, develop a network of recovery coaches, provide food and housing assistance and pay for mental health and hepatitis C treatment.
