Cincinnati HIV services provider STOP AIDS, last week "received $170,000 in federal money from the state that was delayed for six weeks because of problems with the Ohio budget," the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "Services to the 1,000 clients of STOP AIDS continued uninterrupted, said executive director Amy McMahon, because of sacrifices and efforts made by the nonprofit's 26 employees," the newspaper reports. McMahon said employees volunteered to delay their paychecks in order to continue services. "The agency also used reserve funds while waiting for the money," according to the Enquirer (Curnutte, 8/31).
