The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced more than $5 million in grants to help low-income Illinois families living with AIDS or HIV. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said Wednesday the money would serve as a "lifeline" for families struggling to find affordable housing while also trying to stay healthy. About $1.4 million of the money goes to Chicago’s Department of Public Health to continue funding of 37 rental units for people living with AIDS or HIV. Another nearly $2.7 million funds housing through two other Chicago organizations. The St. Louis-based nonprofit Interfaith Residence also receives more than $921,000 for continued permanent housing in 55 southern Illinois counties. ______ Copyright 2009 Associated Press.
