AFC Thanks Congressman Mike Quigley for providing $250,000 to AIDS Foundation Chicago for HIV & Aging

January 5, 2023


AIDS Foundation Chicago thanks U.S. Congressman Mike Quigley (IL-05) for providing $250,000 for training and services to better support seniors living with HIV. “Thankfully, people who are living with HIV and taking medication are living longer. HIV care providers and our supporting partners need training and education to meet the evolving and complex needs of people with HIV as they grow older,” said John Peller, President/CEO of AIDS Foundation Chicago. 

The funding for this comes out of the more than $16.5 million secured by Congressman Quigley (IL-05) for community projects in the Fiscal Year 2023 federal budget, which President Biden signed into law right before the holiday.  

“Thanks to support from Congressman Quigley, we’ll develop different levels of training to educate Chicago-area HIV providers about the challenges of aging. We’re thankful that Congressman Quigley recognizes the importance of making these culturally responsive training options a reality.”
