HHS – Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A HIV Emergency Relief Grant Program (2016)

Applications Due: November 2, 2015, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time

Description:  This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part A HIV Emergency Relief Grant Program. Part A funds provide direct financial assistance to an eligible metropolitan area (EMA) or a transitional grant area (TGA) that has been severely affected by the HIV epidemic. Grants assist eligible program areas in developing or enhancing access to a comprehensive continuum of high quality, community-based care for low-income individuals and families with HIV through the provision of formula, supplemental, and Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) funds. Based on an assessment of the services and gaps in the HIV Care Continuum within a jurisdiction or service area, planning bodies and recipients may identify specific service categories to fund. Funded service categories should facilitate improvements at specific stages of the HIV Care Continuum. Comprehensive HIV/AIDS care consists of core medical services and supportive services that meet the criteria of enabling individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS to access and remain in primary medical care to improve their medical outcomes.
