The NYC Health Department receives a grant from the federal government to provide services to people living with HIV in New York City and the Tri-County region (Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties).
Some people know this program as “Ryan White Part A”. This program funds services such as case management and food programs.
If you are in need of support to pay for medical care, visit the New York State HIV Uninsured Care Program (also known as ADAP), or the Ryan White Services Finder.
