AGENCY: The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) is requesting a deviation from the competition requirements in order to provide a 1 year extension with funds to the Resource and Technical Assistance Center for HIV Prevention and Care for Black MSM cooperative agreement recipient, the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors.

The 2year project period ends June 30, 2016.
