Part C HIV Early Intervention Services Grant, 71420 [E7-24437]

Institutions eligible for these programs are accredited schools of dentistry, post-doctoral dental education programs and dental hygiene programs. The DRP Application is the Dental Services Report that schools and programs use to apply for funding of non-reimbursed costs incurred in providing oral health care to patients with HIV, or to report annual program data. Awards are authorized under section 2692(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 300ff–111(b)). The Dental Services Report collects data in four different areas: program information, patient demographics and services, funding, and training. It also 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 is to verify eligibility and determine reimbursement amounts for DRP applicants, as well as to document the program accomplishments of Community-Based Dental Partnership Program grant recipients. 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 HIV/AIDS programsupported 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) the scope of grant recipients’ community-based collaborations and training of providers. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected in the Dental Services Report is critical for HRSA, State and local grantees, and individual providers, to help assess the status of existing HIV-related health service delivery systems.

Justification for the Exception to Competition

    Funding critical HIV medical care and treatment services for 
homeless populations in Baltimore, MD area will be continued through a 
noncompetitive program expansion supplement to an existing grant award 
to Chase Brexton Health Services. This is a temporary award made 
because the previous grant recipient servicing this population is 
unable to satisfactorily meet legislative and program requirements. 
Chase Brexton, a currently funded Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part C 
grantee, is the best qualified and geographically positioned grantee 
able to provide the necessary continuity of HIV care and treatment for 
the targeted population. The initial supplemental funding will provide 
support for three months. Based on satisfactory performance, continued 
need, and availability of funds, a second and final supplemental award 
for these services will be awarded for twelve months. Further funding 
beyond December 31, 2008, for this service area will be competitively 
awarded during the next Part C HIV Early Intervention Services (EIS) 
competing application process. The next available Part C EIS open 
competing cycle will occur in fiscal year 2009.
