Please help us get the word out about this year’s Youth Point In Time Count: YOUTH COUNT! The count will take place January 23, 2013 – January 28, 2013. If you are under the age of 24, and would like to participate, please click here
to take the survey.
Communities around the country collaborate with HUD every year and have a Point In Time Count for adults who are homeless. This year the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), and U.S. Department of Education (ED) have collaborated to launch a Youth Point In Time Count Pilot in nine locations in the U.S. and Cuyahoga County is one of the locations. The goal is to create the most effective way to do a Point In Time Count for youth that are homeless and unstably housed.

The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland (ATGC) is administering a Community Educator Scholarship for the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) in Washington DC, 22-27 July 2012. The purpose of the scholarship is to support the attendance of one HIV+ individual who is able to transfer the skills and knowledge acquired back to Greater Cleveland via the David Feldt Institute and who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend the conference.
The David Feldt Institute is the ATGC’s primary means of engaging consumers in structured educational programming. From an annual membership survey to support groups such as Men’s group, Women’s group, and the Spill, to formal seminars on medication adherence, the David Feldt Institute forms a cohesive backbone for consumer engagement.
- The DFI Community Educator Scholarship is open to everyone living with HIV in the Greater Cleveland area.
- Application deadline: 13 February 2012. Applications will not be accepted after this date.
- You must be at least 18 years of age at the time of the conference (that is, turn 18 on or before July 22, 2012) to apply for a scholarship.
- You must complete an application and submit it by mail to AIDS 2012 Scholarship Committee, c/o ATGC, 3210 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH, 44115, or email to email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> with the subject heading: “AIDS 2012 Scholarship”.
· Priority consideration will be given to: current members of the David Feldt Institute; those whose participation will help enhance their paid or volunteer work; and those who submit an abstract, workshop or programme activity (Global Village or Youth Programme) to AIDS 2012.
- As only one scholarship is available and the demand is so high, it is strongly recommended you also seek funding from other sources.

The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland applauds the commitment of elected and governmental officials that are now supporting our efforts. We have had many conversations and meetings with officials regarding OHDAP and HIV/AIDS funding. We believe that our voices are being heard.
Small achievements such as the move from Ohio’s Ryan White Part B office to enroll large numbers of individuals into OHDAP are encouraging. On July 8th, 2011 OHDAP had a waiting list of 492. As of September 2nd, 2011 there were 59 individuals on the waiting list. Ohio officials have made a commitment to make efforts to temporarily eliminate the waiting list and enroll those in need directly into OHDAP, at least for the remainder of the year.
Ryan White Part B is also reviewing the reduced formulary, with discussions of possibly reinstating some of the medications that had been removed due to cost-containment measures.
Vigilance is still needed, however, with an eye toward next year’s budget. The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland continues to work with our legislators and decision-makers to ensure the protection of these vital safety-net services for all Ohioans living with HIV.
