"2009 National ADAP Monitoring Project Annual Report," Kaiser Family Foundation, National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors: The report was released on Tuesday during a live webcast and panel discussion, which examined recent trends and challenges for the coming year, including the likely impact of the nation's recession on ADAPs and their clients. The report found that the total ADAP budget reached $1.5 billion in fiscal year 2008 -- up $100 million from the previous year. In addition, the report says that most state ADAPs were able to balance available resources and demand for services in FY 2008, despite the fact that 21 experienced budget cuts. The report also found that three states -- Indiana, Montana and Nebraska -- did not have the resources to serve all eligible clients and established waiting lists. According to the report, 62 people were on waiting lists as of March 2009 (Kaiser Family Foundation release, 4/7).
