This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White Part C Capacity Development Grant Program. It is designed to assist public and nonprofit entities in their efforts to strengthen their organizational infrastructure and to increase their capacity to develop, enhance, or expand access to high quality HIV primary health care services for people living with HIV or who are at risk of infection in underserved or rural communities. Grant funding under this program is not intended to support long-term activities. Instead, the activities should be of a short-term nature and should be completed by the end of the grant period, one year in length.
This FOA is for existing Part C grantees who may submit proposals for one or both of the following activities:
(1) ACA Related Activities: The HIV/AIDS Bureau recognizes that outreach to and enrollment of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWP) clients into available health insurance is critical for the ACA implementation. Part C Ryan White grantees may apply under this Capacity Development Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to support ACA related outreach and enrollment activities.
(2) Infrastructure Development Activities: The applicant may propose infrastructure development activities that will enhance or expand a comprehensive continuum of outpatient HIV primary care services in the community. Activities shall promote organizational infrastructure development and will lead to the delivery or improvement of HIV primary care services.
