DISCUSSION
For the past eleven years, the Department of Health and Human Services (Health Department) has been providing HIV/AIDS health education/risk reduction services under an agreement with the Los Angeles County Office of AIDS Programs and Policy (County). This program, which is intended to serve high-risk populations in the greater Long Beach area, serves approximately 1,000 individuals each year who are at risk for infection/transmission through outreach, group workshops, one-on-one sessions, and community events.

The Health Department received City Council approval for an initial nine-month contract term of October 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010 in the amount of $216,000 on December 1, 2009. The Health Department has been awarded additional funding in the amount of $720,000 for the thirty-month period of July 1, 2010 through December 31, 2012. City Council approval is required for the additional thirty-month funding period.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Linda Trang on February 17, 2010 and by Victoria Bell, Budget Management Officer on February 22, 2010.
