Notice of Class Deviation From Competition Requirements for National Organizations for State and Local Officials Program
In FY 2019, HRSA received funding from the Minority HIV/AIDS Fund from the Office of Secretary. The purpose of Minority HIV/AIDS Fund is to reduce new HIV infections, improve HIV-related health outcomes, and to reduce HIV-related health disparities for racial and ethnic minority communities by supporting innovation, collaboration, and the integration of best practices, effective strategies, and promising emerging models in the response to HIV among minority communities. HRSA will be providing supplemental funds to support activities for the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), to support the Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (EtHE) initiative to eliminate new HIV infections by providing communities most severely affected by HIV with critical resources to address the HIV epidemic. The supplemental funds will be used to augment the awardee's current activities to improve access to quality services, support a skilled health workforce, develop innovative programs, and prevent and suppress communicable diseases to preserve and improve public health through the National Organizations for State and Local Officials program. The purpose of this supplement is to identify key stakeholders in the seven southern states that have a substantial rural HIV burden and establish collaborative partnerships in each state by convening leadership meetings with State Health Officials, Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part B Directors, HIV Surveillance Coordinators, HIV Prevention Directors, and other partners engaged in EtHE efforts.
