San Francisco Mayor London Breed will include a $3 million increase for HIV services in her two-year budget she is set to release June 1.

The funding request has the support of the city's two gay members of the Board of Supervisors, which will make its own adjustments to the budget before adopting it by July 1.The mayor's funding proposal is far short, however, of the $10.5 million in new city funding that a coalition of HIV advocates and service providers is seeking as part of its HIV Community Budget Proposal.

Part of their ask was for between $2 to $3 million to maintain current HIV prevention services in the city.The coalition is also calling on city leaders to backfill any cuts to San Francisco's allocation in its Ryan White Federal CARE grant to fund HIV services, currently at about $15 million.
