The Title I Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) supplement is a component of 
the CARE Act Title I Program to ``address substantial need for care and 
support services for minority populations in eligible metropolitan 
areas (EMA).'' The overall goal of the MAI is to improve HIV/AIDS-
related health outcomes for communities of color by allowing 
communities to: (1) Expand local service capacity primarily through 
community-based organizations serving racial and ethnic minorities; (2) 
improve service delivery; and (3) support the development of new and 
innovative programs designed to reduce HIV/AIDS-related health 
disparities.
    The Title I MAI Report is designed to collect performance data from 
Title I MAI grantees, and has the following two components: (1) The 
Title I MAI Plan (Plan) and (2) the Title I MAI Year-End Annual Report 
(Report). The Plan and Report components will be linked to minimize the

number and demographics of clients served, and client-level outcomes. 
This information is needed to monitor and assess: (1) Increases and 
changes in the type and amount of HIV/AIDS health care and related 
services being provided to each disproportionately impacted community 
of color; (2) increases in the number of persons receiving HIV/AIDS 
services within each racial and ethnic community; and (3) the impact of 
Title I MAI-funded services in terms of client-level and service-level 
health outcomes. This information also will be used to plan new 
technical assistance and capacity development activities, and inform 
the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) policy and program management functions.
    The Title I MAI Report form and instructions will be available for 
all grantees to download from the HRSA/HAB Web site. All grantees will

responses, and open-ended questions. All Title I grantees receiving MAI
