What is the program?

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding for the Enhancing Engagement of People with HIV through Organizational Capacity Development and Leadership Training (E2tDLT) program, administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Under this program HRSA will fund an organization to provide training and technical assistance (TA) to support leadership development and enhance community engagement for people with HIV in health care planning and programs. The program also focuses on improving organizational readiness and strengthening the capacity of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) recipients and subrecipients to employ people with HIV. Funding for this program will be awarded through a cooperative agreement. The Enhancing Engagement of People with HIV through Organizational Capacity Development and Leadership Training (E2tDLT) builds on existing HRSA program curricula and resources to enhance leadership skills, community engagement, and organizational readiness to employ people with HIV. These existing programs include: the Building Leaders of Color (BLOC), the Center for Quality Improvement and Innovation (CQII) Training Consumers in Quality Plus, Improving Access to Care: Using Community Health Workers to Improve Linkage and Retention in Care (Among People of Color), Planning Community HIV/AIDS TA and Training (CHATT), and Access, Care, and Engagement (ACE) Technical Assistance (TA) Center’s health literacy. The Enhancing Engagement of People with HIV through Organizational Capacity Development and Leadership Training (E2tDLT) program aims to leverage the knowledge base of these existing programs to achieve the following program objectives: • Increase leadership, representation, and engagement of people with HIV in RWHAP planning, development, implementation, and clinical quality management activities; • Develop skills and support knowledge transfer through peer coaching for people with HIV; and • Support organizational readiness to employ people with HIV in RWHAP recipient and subrecipient organizations. The cooperative agreement activities should be offered through various modalities of training and TA to support people with HIV, RWHAP recipients, and subrecipients with the overall goal of enhancing leadership development, community engagement, and organizational readiness to employ and support people with HIV in RWHAP health care planning and treatment and support services programs. The types of training and TA activities, expanded later in this announcement, are: A. Training for people with HIV in leadership and community engagement; B. Peer coaching for people with HIV and RWHAP recipients and subrecipients; C. Virtual support to RWHAP recipients and subrecipients to enhance organizational readiness to employ and support people with HIV as part of the HIV workforce. Training and TA provided under this cooperative agreement must utilize or enhance existing curricula and resources. Unless idenfied as a gap in the existing training curricula and resources, funding may not be used to develop new curricula.
