Since the AETC regional centers operate in all U.S. states and territories, the target areas of the EHE are already encompassed in their service areas. This geographic coverage offers HRSA a strategic opportunity to leverage the existing AETC infrastructure and their established networks of health care providers and professional training institutions to provide critical, timesensitive training and technical assistance in EHE jurisdictions. Further, since the goals of the AETC program directly align with the goals of the EHE initiative, regional AETCs are uniquely positioned to immediately begin delivering targeted, multidisciplinary education and training to new and experienced health care professionals to enable them to provide quality HIV care and treatment in the EHE jurisdictions.

    Regional AETCs Funding Levels in FY 2020 and throughout the period 
of performance. Funding beyond FY 2020 is subject to the availability 
of appropriated funds, satisfactory recipient performance, and a 
decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the federal 
government.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Intended Recipient of the Award: Regional AIDS Education and 
Training Centers as listed on TABLE 1.
    Amount of Award: $2,400,000 available in FY 2020. See TABLE 1 for 
award amounts in each subsequent year of each regional AETC's period of 
performance.
    CFDA Number: 93.145.
    Project Period: March 1, 2020- June 30, 2024.
    Authority: 42 U.S.C. 300ff-111(a) (section 2692(a) of the Public 
Health Service (PHS) Act), 42 U.S.C. 300ff-121 (section 2693 of the PHS 
Act), and Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (Pub. L. 116-
94).
    Justification: The award recipients will provide specialized HIV 
focused training and technical assistance (T/TA) to providers in 
geographic areas with the highest HIV burden, targeted as Ending the 
HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EHE) jurisdictions, which are 48 
counties; Washington, DC; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and seven states that 
have a substantial rural HIV burden. Since the AETC regional centers 
operate in all U.S. states and territories, the target areas of the EHE 
are already encompassed in their service areas. This geographic 
coverage offers HRSA a strategic opportunity to leverage the existing 
AETC infrastructure and their established networks of health care 
providers and professional training institutions to provide critical, 
time-sensitive training and technical assistance in EHE jurisdictions. 
Further, since the goals of the AETC program directly align with the 
goals of the EHE initiative, regional AETCs are uniquely positioned to 
immediately begin delivering targeted, multidisciplinary education and 
training to new and experienced health care professionals to enable 
them to provide quality HIV care and treatment in the EHE 
jurisdictions. Supplemental funds are necessary to support timely 
implementation of critical training and technical assistance to 
providers in geographic locations identified by the EHE initiative. The 
award recipients have the demonstrated expertise and scalable 
experience required to address these time-sensitive training and 
technical assistance needs.
