Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A Planning Council and Transitional Grant Area Planning Body Technical Assistance (TA) Cooperative Agreement
This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A Planning Council and Transitional Grant Area (TGA) Planning Body Technical Assistance (TA) Cooperative Agreement. The goal of this cooperative agreement is to provide comprehensive technical assistance to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part A Planning Councils and Transitional Grant Area (TGA) Planning Bodies (Planning Councils/Bodies) that will enable them to enhance their abilities to successfully meet legislative responsibilities. In an effort to meet goals and legislative responsibilities, the Health Resources and Services Administration/HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA/HAB) will engage an organization with national reach to provide Planning Council and TGA Planning Body-related technical assistance to recipients, jurisdictional leadership and support staff. Comprehensive site visits conducted by HRSA/HAB’s Division of Metropolitan HIV/AIDS Program (DMHAP) for each RWHAP Part A jurisdiction (n=52) have identified a critical need for a comprehensive technical assistance mechanism for Part A Planning Councils/Bodies. This technical assistance and support will enable them to enhance their abilities to successfully meet legislative requirements, strengthen their role in providing essential engagement of people living with HIV (PLWH), and increase the involvement of prevention, care and treatment providers in the Part A panning process. The recipient of this cooperative agreement will offer a full range of technical assistance delivered through both in-person and virtual methods, including but not limited to creating and updating resource guidance tools. More details can be found in the full announcement.
