The Ryan White CARE Act Amendments of 2000 expanded eligibility of this program to accredited schools of dental hygiene, in addition to previously funded schools of dentistry and post-doctoral dental education programs. HRSA is revising the DRP Application that schools and programs use to apply for funding of non-reimbursed costs incurred in providing oral health care to patients with HIV. Awards are authorized under section 2692 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 300ff–111). The DRP Application will collect data in three different areas: Program information, patient demographics and services, and reimbursement and funding.

Chapter 35). To request a copy of the clearance requests submitted to requests applicants to provide narrative descriptions of their services and facilities, as well as their links and collaboration with community-based providers of oral health services. The primary purpose of collecting this information annually, as part of the DRP Application, is to verify eligibility and determine the reimbursement amount each applicant should receive. This information also allows HRSA to learn about (1) The extent of the involvement of dental schools and programs in treating patients with HIV, (2) the number and characteristics of clients who receive CARE Act-supported oral health services, (3) the types and frequency of the provision of these services, (4) the non-reimbursed costs of oral health care provided to patients with HIV, and (5) how applicants intend to use DRP funds once they are received. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected in the DRP Application is critical for HRSA, State and local grantees, and individual providers, to help assess the status of existing HIV-related health service delivery systems.
