Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Planning and Implementation for Metropolitan Statistical Areas Most Affected by HIV/AIDS: Phase II
Grant Amounts: The US Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is providing an estimated total of $64,000,000 in funding for this grant. Phase I of this program (CDC-RFA-PS10-10181) supported the development and initial implementation of Enhanced Comprehensive HIV Prevention Plans (ECHPPs) for MSAs most affected by the HIV epidemic in order to reduce HIV risk and incidence in those areas. In Phase II, which will be supported under this FOA (CDC-RFA-PS11-1117), all adequately performing jurisdictions funded under Phase I that are responsive to this FOA will be selected to further support coordination and implementation of their ECHPPs over a two-year project period.
The FOA includes two components: Part A – ECHPP Coordination and Evaluation; and Part B – ECHPP Implementation. Part A will support grantees’ efforts to (1) administer and manage cross-agency coordination efforts, including partnerships and funding streams to better leverage prevention, care, and treatment resources; and (2) administer and manage data coordination, which could include activities ranging from the development of common measures to development of integrated data systems to be able to collect relevant data to monitor jurisdictional progress on goals consistent with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, including data reporting to CDC and other stakeholders. Part B will support additional implementation of “Required” and “Recommended” ECHPP activities (Appendix 1) as described in the previous Funding Opportunity Announcement CDC-RFA-PS10-10181 or other strategies or interventions included in the jurisdiction’s CDC-approved Enhanced Plan. Applicants may apply for both Part A and Part B or for Part A only. Applicants cannot apply for Part B only.

This announcement supports integration of diagnostic and prevention services for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), sexually transmitted diseases (STD); and tuberculosis (TB) because of CDC's greater understanding of the extent to which: • STDs increase the risk for HIV infection. • Control of TB, viral hepatitis, and STDs is needed to protect the health of HIV-infected persons. • HIV, viral hepatitis and STDs share common risks and modes of transmission. • Risks for acquiring theses diseases are associated with similar behaviors and environmental conditions and have reciprocal or interdependent effects. • Clinical course and outcomes of these diseases are influenced by co-infection (for example, HIV/TB can be deadly, and TB accelerates HIV disease progression). • Populations disproportionately affected by HIV are also disproportionately affected by infections with TB, HCV, HBV, and STDs.
Details of this strategy and approach are outlined in the NCHHSTP White Paper which can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/programintegration.
