Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part D grant recipients provide outpatient ambulatory family-centered primary and specialty medical care and support services for women, infants, children, and youth living with HIV.
Part D grant recipients are local, community-based organizations seeking to enhance their response to the HIV epidemic in their area through providing family-centered primary medical care and support services to women, infants, children, and youth living with HIV when payments for such services are unavailable from other sources.
The following organizations may apply for funding:
- Public or private nonprofit entities that provide (directly, through contracts, or through memoranda of understanding) primary medical care for HIV-positive women, infants, children, and youth.
- State and local governments and their agencies, as well as Indian tribes or tribal organizations with or without federal recognition.
- Faith-based and community-based organizations.
Services and Implementation
Part D divides allowable costs among four cost categories: medical services, clinical quality management, support services, and administrative.
- Medical Service Costs are associated with providing family-centered care, including access to primary medical care services for women, infants, children, and youth living with HIV.
- Clinical Quality Management (CQM) Costs are costs required to maintain a CQM program, including quality improvement activities, data collection for CQM purposes, and training and technical assistance for staff.
- Support Service Costs are associated with services needed for individuals with HIV to achieve their HIV medical outcomes, including case management, patient transportation to medical appointments, and outreach to recruit and keep women, infants, children, and youth living with HIV in care.
- Administrative Costs are those costs not directly associated with service provision. By RWHAP statute, no more than 10 percent of a Part D budget can be allocated to administrative costs.
