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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:22 Apr 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 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, 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. Supplemental funds are necessary to support timely implementation of critical training and technical assistance to providers in geographic locations identified by the EHE initiative.

Abstract: HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program AIDS Drug Assistance Program (RWHAP ADAP) is authorized under Part B of the RWHAP legislation, codified in sections 2611 et seq. of the Public Health Service Act, which provides grants to U.S. states and territories. HRSA’s RWHAP ADAP is a state and territory-administered program that provides Food and Drug Administration-approved medications to low-income people with HIV who have limited or no health coverage from private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare. HRSA’s RWHAP ADAP funds may also be used to purchase health insurance for eligible clients and for services that enhance access, adherence, and monitoring of drug treatments. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the five U.S. Pacific Territories or Associated Jurisdictions receive RWHAP Part B grant awards including funds for RWHAP ADAP. RWHAP Part B reporting requirements include the annual submission of an ADAP Data Report (ADR), including a Recipient Report and a Client Report. The Recipient Report is a collection of basic information about grant recipient characteristics and policies including program administration, purchasing mechanisms, funding, and expenditures. The Client Report is a collection of client-level records (one record for each client enrolled in the RWHAP ADAP), which includes the client’s encrypted unique identifier, basic demographic data, enrollment information, services received and clinical data. HRSA is proposing several changes to the ADR Recipient and Client Reports to improve question clarity, delete obsolete data elements, combine related data elements, add new data elements, and improve response options to reflect program practices and support HRSA’s analysis and understanding of program impact.
