Some County Health Agencies Struggle Despite H1N1 Money
Although health departments in San Bernardino County and Riverside County are receiving about $9 million in federal funds to combat H1N1 influenza, many still are cutting back on other health programs. The Riverside County Department of Public Health received $4.5 million to combat H1N1, but last month said it would cut spending by 5% to remain within 2010-2011 spending and revenue projections. The San Bernardino County Public Health Department received $3.1 million for H1N1 but recently consolidated clinics and services.
