What is the program?

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part C Capacity Development Program. The purpose of this program is to strengthen organizational capacity to respond to the changing health care landscape and increase access to high-quality HIV primary health care services for low-income, uninsured, and underserved people with HIV.
Funding under this program is intended to support one short-term activity that can be completed by the end of the one-year period of performance. You may propose an expansion of an activity previously supported under FY2019 or FY2020 RWHAP Part D Supplemental (HRSA-19-026; HRSA-20-068) or Part C Capacity Development funding (HRSA-19-031; HRSA-20-067) however, HRSA will not fund the same activity in FY 2021 as HRSA funded previously in FY 2019 or FY 2020. If the proposed project is an expansion of a previously funded activity, you will be required to provide a clear rationale for how the proposed activity builds upon and furthers the objectives of the previously funded HIV Care Innovation or Infrastructure Development activity. You may select only one (1) activity under the selected category.
HIV Care Innovation
HIV Care Innovation activities support progress along the HIV care continuum to improve the health and increase the life span of people with HIV and prevent new infections. There are four (4) activities from which to choose. If applying under this category, select only one of the four activities listed below:
• Community Health Workers
• Integration of HIV Primary Care with Oral Health and/or Behavioral Health
• Rapid Antiretroviral Therapy (ART)
• Transitioning Youth into Adult HIV Care
Infrastructure Development
Infrastructure Development activities support organizational development and will increase the capacity of organizations to respond to changes in the health care environment. There are three (3) activities from which to choose. If applying under this category, select only one of the three activities listed below:
• Dental Equipment for Expanding Dental Service Capacity
• Emergency Preparedness
• Telemedicine
Collectively, activities will allow applicants to better align with priority areas for the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and HRSA, including investing in mental health, addressing the opioid crisis, and promoting collaboration. The selected activity should target populations disproportionately affected by the HIV
epidemic and who have poor health outcomes. Successful applicants will demonstrate your organization’s intent and ability to sustain proposed HIV Care Innovation activities or proposed Infrastructure Development enhancements without additional federal funds beyond the one-year period of performance. Furthermore, successful applicants will demonstrate that the proposed activity will strengthen organizational capacity to respond to the changing health care landscape and increase access to high-quality HIV primary health care services for low-income, uninsured, and underserved people with HIV.
According to statute, HRSA shall give preference in making awards for this program to entities that provide primary care services in rural areas or to underserved populations. You can find more information about these preferences in Section V of this notice of
funding opportunity (NOFO).
