HIV Early Intervention Services (EIS) Program Existing Geographic Service Areas (EISEGA)
Grant Amount: Approximately $6,009,353 is expected to be available annually to fund 11 grantees.
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) announces this funding opportunity for competing Part C Early Intervention Services (EIS) to support outpatient HIV early intervention and primary care services. These services target low-income, medically underserved people living with HIV/AIDS.
The purpose of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part C EIS Program is to provide HIV primary care in the outpatient setting. Applicants must propose to provide a comprehensive continuum of outpatient HIV primary care services in the targeted area including: (1) targeted HIV counseling, testing, and referral; (2) medical evaluation and clinical care; (3) other primary care services; and (4) referrals to other health services. Primary care for persons with HIV disease should start as early in the course of the infection as possible. However, entry into a Part C EIS program may take place at any point in the spectrum of the disease or the patient’s lifespan.
As established in section 2651 of the PHS Act, and according to the terms and conditions of these awards, a Part C program grantee must expend grant funds to provide HIV primary medical care in a proposed service area. These services must be reflected in the budget. Staff positions such as nurses, medical assistants, and dental hygienists can be included in the budget when the position proportionately complements HIV primary medical care providers, such as physicians, dentists, physician assistants, or nurse practitioners for the Part C program. Accordingly, a Ryan White HIV/AIDS program Part C budget must reflect a medical model of care in which providers can assess, treat and refer, as applicable. Providers must be authorized, via credentialing and licensure, to prescribe medications, order medically indicated tests/exams, interpret symptoms, treat, and meet HHS guidelines.

Award Amount Notes
Approximately $6,009,353 is expected to be available annually to fund 11 grantees. Applicants, including those for open service areas, may apply for a ceiling amount of up to the Fiscal Year 2012 funding level, including any Increasing Access to HIV Care and Treatment supplemental funds, as described in Appendix B. The project period is three years. Funding beyond the first year is dependent on the availability of appropriated funds for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part C EIS Program in subsequent fiscal years, grantee satisfactory performance, and a decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the Federal Government. Inadequate progress and/or justification may result in the reduction of approved funding levels.
