What is the program?

This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part B AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Emergency Relief Funding (ERF).  ADAP is administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB), Division of State HIV/AIDS Programs (DSHAP).

Limited New Competing ADAP ERF awards are intended for States/Territories that demonstrate the need for additional resources to prevent, reduce, or eliminate ADAP waiting lists, including through cost-containment measures (for example, the provision of health insurance assistance).  Limited new competing ADAP ERF awards will be based on the applicant’s ability to successfully demonstrate need for additional funding.  This demonstrated need will be evaluated by an external Objective Review Committee (ORC) based on criteria published in this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), with priority given to addressing waiting lists. 

States/Territories with an existing ADAP waiting list reported to HRSA must use all funding awarded under this announcement to remove clients from the waiting list.  States/Territories that did not report an existing waiting list to HRSA must use funding awarded under this announcement to prevent a waiting list through “cost-cutting” and/or “cost-saving” measures (e.g., establishment of a health insurance assistance program).
