Grants to New York nonprofit health care organizations to increase access to treatment for people suffering from hepatitis C (HCV). Funding is intended for programs that provide access to treatment and care for people with HCV, increase the rate of successful HCV initiation and treatment, and increase the number of people who are cured of HCV. Special consideration will be given to populations that are underserved and socially disadvantaged.

The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute (NYSDOH AI) Division of HIV and Hepatitis Health Care, Bureau of Hepatitis Health Care, and Health Research, Inc. (HRI) announce the availability funding in New York State (NYS) and federal funding for five (5) years to increase the number of people who are treated and cured for hepatitis C (HCV). As part of New York State’s (NYS’s) plan to eliminate HCV, this will be accomplished by creating a primary care-based integrated multidisciplinary model of care to serve all populations in an equitable manner, especially those currently underserved and socially disadvantaged. Funded applicants will conduct targeted outreach, linkage and care coordination to assist people with HCV, and HIV/HCV in accessing timely HCV medical care and appropriate supportive services in a primary care setting.

To impact the HCV epidemic and move towards elimination, models of care are needed to optimize the HCV care continuum by: outreaching to people who are most at risk and identifying those with HCV; proactively addressing the social and structural barriers that prevent them from engaging in care and prevention; facilitating health systems navigation and patient support; and creating convenient, accessible, multidisciplinary methods of HCV care and treatment delivery.

The goals of this RFA are to: 

  • Increase the number of people living with HCV who are linked to care; 
  • Increase HCV treatment initiation and completion rates; and
  • Increase the number of people cured of HCV.

This will be accomplished by conducting targeted client outreach and recruitment and by providing care coordination, peer-delivered services, and HCV care and treatment utilizing a multidisciplinary care team approach in a primary care setting. Programs are expected to serve all people with HCV in an equitable manner, with attention to ensuring non-discriminatory care to those currently underserved and socially disadvantaged. The priority populations for this RFA are people with mono-infection of HCV and/or co-infection of HIV/HCV. This includes uninsured persons.

Successful applicants will demonstrate their ability to:

  • Outreach, recruit, and link people living with HCV to care and services;
  • Provide care coordination to assess and address issues impacting care;
  • Provide comprehensive, high-quality HCV medical care, treatment, and peer-delivered supportive services to all people with HCV;
  • Provide services that are culturally responsive, trauma-informed, and free of stigma and discrimination
  • Design a program that addresses the social determinants of health that impact access to HCV care and completion of treatment (see Plan to Address Social Determinants of Health - Attachment 2);
  • Prescribe MAT (Medication for Addiction Treatment); and
  • Involve people with lived experience of HCV in the planning and design of the proposed program.

For information on program requirements, see page 9 of the RFP attached below.
