Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part B AIDS Drug Assistance Program Training and Technical Assistance

This announcement solicits applications for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part B AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Training and Technical Assistance program. The purpose of this funding is to build the capacity of ADAPs through tools and technical assistance to maximize the impact of ADAPs in improving the health outcomes of people living with HIV in a changing health care environment. In collaboration with HRSA, the funded entity will provide technical assistance to RWHAP Part B recipients to strengthen ADAP administrative structures and operations, and to strengthen the capacity of ADAPs to implement and administer medication assistance and health insurance assistance programs to optimize client health outcomes. The funded entity will also be responsible for conducting on-going assessment of RWHAP Part B recipients’ technical assistance needs related to ADAP and adapting technical assistance to changing needs. The applicant must clearly demonstrate that the applicant brings the experience and expertise needed to provide technical assistance and training to the State/Territory Health Departments’ RWHAP Part B ADAP programs. An ADAP is a State/Territory-administered program authorized under Part B of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program that provides FDA-approved medications to low-income individuals with HIV disease who have limited or no coverage from private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare. ADAP funds may also be used to purchase health insurance for eligible clients and for services that enhance access to, adherence to, and monitoring of drug treatments. Patient eligibility is determined by the State or Territory and includes verification of HIV status, and that the applicant meets financial and residency eligibility criteria. ADAPs are required to recertify client eligibility at least every six months. This cooperative agreement supports the primary goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS).
