Program Description

This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program National Training and Technical Assistance Cooperative Agreements - Establishing AIDS Service Organization Service Models and Engaging in Marketplace Insurance Plans under the Affordable Care Act. ?The purpose of this National Training and Technical Assistance Cooperative Agreement initiative is to fund two organizations to undertake a series of activities to provide ACA implementation support to grantees, subgrantees, and people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) served by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. ?These activities will support two program focus areas intended to enhance access to and quality of HIV clinical care and care completion services for underserved persons with HIV disease. ?The primary aim of the first program focus area is to train Ryan White core medical providers to both initiate contracts with qualified health plans and facilitate client enrollment into those health plans. ?The primary aim of the second program focus area is to train non-medical AIDS Service Organizations (ASOs) to develop a service model that supports the provision of critical services for specific vulnerable populations to improve health outcomes through the different stages of the HIV Care Continuum. This is to be accomplished through the provision of training and technical assistance, which is defined as the identification of need for, and delivery of, practical program and technical support to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) community. ?Training and technical assistance is intended to maximally assist grantees, funded providers, affected communities, and individuals living with HIV infection to design and deliver HIV care programs and to align with new health care coverage options under the Affordable Care Act. ?This includes assistance designing, implementing, and evaluating community-based primary care treatment and care completion services that are supported by the RWHAP.
