This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Building Capacity for HIV Elimination in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A Jurisdictions project. The purpose of this project is to provide technical assistance funding to strengthen efforts to end the HIV epidemic in RWHAP Part A jurisdictions through improvements along the HIV care continuum.
Funding under this project is not intended to support long-term activities. The proposed activity(ies) should be of a short-term nature and should be completed by the end of the two-year period of performance for this funding opportunity. You may propose an expansion of activities currently supported with RWHAP Part A funding that does not duplicate current activities. If the proposed technical assistance project is an expansion of an existing RWHAP Part A activity, you must provide a clear rationale for how the proposed activity builds capacity to further the objectives of that funded activity in order to move the jurisdiction closer to eliminating new infections.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) sought feedback from current RWHAP Part A recipients via a series of webinars on the types of technical assistance activities that would be most effective in enhancing efforts to end the HIV epidemic in their jurisdictions. HRSA divided the feedback into the four categories of activities listed below and described in detail in the Project Narrative section. You may only submit proposals for one or more activities under these categories:
1) Infrastructure Support
• Data System
• Organizational Capacity
2) Information Dissemination and Marketing
• Website Development
• Web/Mobile Application Development
• Targeted Awareness Campaigns (including social media efforts)
3) Community Engagement
• Community Planning
• Focus Groups
• Stakeholder Engagement
• System Integration
4) Enhancing Core Medical and Support Services
Eligible applicants include current RWHAP Part A recipients that are classified as an EMA or TGA and continue to meet the eligibility criteria as defined in the statute. Current RWHAP Part A recipients are uniquely positioned to implement the time-limited activities required by this project.
