Boston Public Health Commission


    The Boston EMA also receives Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) funds to provide services targeting African American and Hispanic clients residing in Massachusetts. After the original FY 1999 award of Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) funds, the Planning Council reviewed the MAI guidelines and recommended the Boston EMA utilize MAI funds to provide additional Medical Case Management and Psychosocial Support – Peer Support Services. Agencies funded in the MAI category must be minority-based agencies (board, staff and clients) and have a history of providing services to PLWH from disproportionately impacted minority communities.
