That funding comes in the form of a grant from the Department of State Health Services.
It will extend the HIV Prevention Program that's already in place.
Health officials say the program has a significant impact in the community.
Lou Kreidler, director of the Wichita County Health Department, says, "One way that we really used the grant this year is when we had the outbreak of TB at the Mission. We used those staff and went out and did both TB and HIV testing in that community as well, which is a high-risk population because they are homeless."
The health district has received the grant for the past 15 years.
And in that time, Kreidler says staff has identified many positive cases of HIV in Wichita County.
