Tennessee is cutting funding to HIV prevention, detection and treatment programs that are not affiliated with metro health departments.

The state of Tennessee is cutting funding to HIV prevention, detection and treatment programs that are not affiliated with metro health departments as of May 31. Organizations across the state were formally notified Wednesday.

In an email obtained by The Commercial Appeal, United Way of Greater Nashville ― which administers the funds given to the Tennessee Department of Health by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ― told partner organizations there would be a change in the state’s HIV prevention program.

“TDH has informed United Way that CDC Prevention and (Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. initiative) funding will end on May 31, 2023. TDH will utilize other state initiatives to support all HIV prevention and surveillance staff and activities in funded metro health departments and those contracts will be in place by June 1, 2023,” said Niki Easley, director of the HIV/AIDS Initiative for the United Way of Greater Nashville.
