Such documentation may include one or more of the following types of information for the service area for the prior fiscal year: HIV/AIDS care and treatment services inventories including funding sources, HIV/AIDS met and unmet need assessments, HIV/AIDS client/patient service utilization data, planning council core medical services priority setting and funding allocations documents, and letters from Medicaid and other State and local HIV/AIDS entitlement and benefits programs, which may include private insurers. Information provided by grantees must show specific verifiable evidence that all listed core medical services are available and accessible to meet the needs of persons with HIV/AIDS who are identified and eligible for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program services without further infusion of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program dollars. Such documentation must also describe which specific core medical services are available, from whom, and through what funding source. Grantees must have evidence of a public process for the dissemination of information and must document that they have sought input from affected communities, including Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded core medical services providers, related to the availability of core medical services and the decision to request a waiver. This public process may be the same one utilized for obtaining input on community needs as part of the comprehensive planning process. In addition, grantees must describe in narrative form the following: 1. Local/State underlying issues that influenced the grantee’s decision to request a waiver and how the submitted documentation supports the assertion that such services are available and accessible to all individuals with HIV/ AIDS identified and eligible under Title XXVI in the service area. 2. How the approval of a waiver will impact the grantee’s ability to address unmet need for HIV/AIDS services and perform outreach to HIV-positive individuals not currently in care. 3. The consistency of the waiver request with the grantee’s grant application, including proposed service priorities and funding allocations. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:13 Jun 10, 2008 Jkt 214001 33099 Waiver Review and Notification Process notice is to reflect the new Order of Succession for HRSA. As indicated, grantees must submit a waiver request with their annual grant application. No waiver requests will be accepted at any other time (other than with the annual grant application). Application guidance documents will be amended to include this requirement. HRSA/HAB will review requests for waiver of the core medical services requirement and will notify grantees of waiver approval no later than the date of issuance of a NOGA. Core medical services waivers will be effective for a one-year period consistent with the grant award period.
