State funding slips from SAN

Washington State Department of Health contracts, 75% of SAN program funding, not awarded for 2016.

We are sad to announce that SAN was not awarded a contract with the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) to provide HIV care and prevention services. After 31 years of tirelessly serving the community, SAN will be transitioning all medical case management and HIV prevention services to Spokane Regional Health Department (SRHD) for continued care by March 31, 2017, after which time, SRHD will be funded by DOH to maintain these services moving forward. In the Wenatchee, Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties these services were awarded to Confluence Health, with the same timeline and transition.

So, what does this mean for SAN, our customers and the community we serve?

Although SAN is a standalone 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization, the DOH represents over 75% of our funding source for these programs. This funding has helped SAN provide holistic care for HIV customers while also working daily to meet the WA State goal to end AIDS by 2020 by reducing new HIV infections by 50% by 2020.

Representatives from the DOH will are scheduled to visit SAN on November 14th from 3-5 pm for an open forum with the community. In the interim, you can also share your questions and concerns with DOH at:

Sarah Fanucci
HIV Client Services
P.O. Box 47841
Olympia, WA 98504-7841

SAN will be using the next few months to determine what opportunities remain for us to serve the Spokane Community. We will also be committed to fully supporting our customers through this transition, including continuing to provide case management, food pantry, mental health, housing and transportation services support through this transition.

As we have updated information, we will be posting it to our Transition page HERE.
