Grants to USA health care providers, faith-based organizations, and community organizations in multiple states to address public health issues related to HIV. Required registrations may take up to one month to complete. Funding is intended to benefit states with a disproportionate occurrence of HIV in rural areas: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.

The purpose of the Rural HIV/AIDS Planning program is to assist in the planning and development of an integrated rural HIV health network for HIV care and treatment, specifically with network participants who do not have a history of formal collaborative HIV efforts.

The Rural HIV/AIDS Planning program offers rural health care providers the opportunity to address community HIV needs, gaps and challenges, including issues related to the need for early diagnosis, comprehensive care that includes support services such as transportation, substance use treatment, stigma, innovative service delivery models with the goal of improving health outcomes among people with HIV and reducing the number of new HIV infections. The intent is for rural HIV health networks to expand access to HIV care, increase the use of health information technology such as CDC data to care models, use telemedicine models for training and care, partner with Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) recipients, explore innovative health care delivery models, and continue to promote quality health care across the continuum of care. The Rural HIV/AIDS Planning program provides support to rural communities for the implementation of activities needed to plan and develop formal and integrated rural HIV health care networks such as, but not limited to, business plan development, community needs assessment, network organizational assessment, SWOT analysis, and a health information technology readiness assessment. The purpose of this program is to fund planning activities.

• Rural public and rural nonprofit private health care provider organizations or providers of health care services including faith-based and community organizations; and
• In a consortium with at least two additional health care providers. These two other organizations can be rural, urban, nonprofit, or for-profit.

The applicant organization must be a rural nonprofit private or rural public entity that represents a consortium/network composed of three or more health care providers. Network members may be rural or urban, nonprofit or for-profit entities. Federally recognized tribal entities are eligible to apply as long as they are located in a non-metropolitan county or in a rural census tract of a metropolitan county, and all services must be provided in a non-metropolitan county or rural census tract.

Existing rural HIV health networks that seek to expand services, expand their service area, include new or additional partners, or target a new population or new focus area are eligible to apply. Existing networks that are proposing to collaborate with at least two new outside organizations they have not previously worked with under a formal relationship are eligible to apply.

If the applicant organization’s headquarters are located in a metropolitan or urban county, that also serves or has branches in a non-metropolitan or rural county, the applicant organization is not eligible to apply solely because of the rural areas they serve. For-profit or urban-based organizations are not eligible to be the applicant organization.
