Algire says ‘business as usual’ is not good enough

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is delivering $350 billion for eligible state, local, territorial, and tribal governments to help address the COVID-19 emergency and bring back jobs. Local and tribal governments across our nation have been gifted a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make meaningful investments in systems and structures that often determine the life course of the most vulnerable citizens in our communities. For many localities, including our own, ARPA funds represent the largest fiscal stimulus in decades. Locally, Winchester and Clark County will receive more than $10 million in ARPA funds with roughly 70 percent going to the county and 30 percent to the city. Input and robust dialogue from diverse sectors of this community should occur prior to decisions about utilizing the funds.

National HIV Testing Day is June 27

On June 27, 2021, we stand in solidarity to celebrate National HIV Testing Day (NHTD). Beginning in 1995, National HIV Testing Day became a significant event, as it raised awareness about HIV/AIDS and strongly encouraged everyone to get tested. Today, we continue to work towards that goal. The earlier a reactive result is detected, the earlier the person can be linked to HIV care. Early detection and early initiation of treatment is key to a better quality of life.
