The purpose of this program is to supplement formula-based funding provided through the HIV Care Grant Program – RWHAP Part B States/Territories Formula and AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Formula and ADAP Supplemental Awards Notice of Funding Opportunity.
States/territories use RWHAP Part B Supplemental Grant Program funding in conjunction with RWHAP Part B HIV Care Grant Program funding to develop and/or enhance access to a comprehensive continuum of high-quality care and treatment services for low-income people with HIV. To obtain funding, states/territories must demonstrate that RWHAP Part B supplemental funding is necessary to provide comprehensive HIV care and treatment services for people with HIV in the state/territory. Proposed activities should include the provision of core medical and/or support services, as defined in HRSA HAB Policy Clarification Notice (PCN) 16-02: RWHAP Services: Eligible Individuals and Allowable Uses of Funds, and other activities to ensure responsiveness to unmet needs. States/territories must describe how proposed activities will address unmet needs and improve client-level health outcomes across the HIV care continuum, including viral suppression.
Eligible RWHAP Part B states/territories that are focus areas, or have counties that are focus areas, for the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative should consider if there is an increased need for RWHAP Part B supplemental funding due to the EHE initiative efforts using criteria below.
