Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part C Capacity Development Program

Funding Agency:
Health Resources and Services Administration

This announcement solicits applications for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part C Capacity Development Program to strengthen organizational infrastructure to respond to the changing health care landscape and to increase capacity to develop, enhance, or expand access to high quality HIV primary health care services for low-income, uninsured, underinsured, and underserved PLWH. The FY 2017 RWHAP Part C Capacity Development Program provides one-time funds to build local capacity to support an activity that addresses a gap in the local HIV care continuum. 

Funding under this program is not intended to support long-term activities. Instead, the proposed activity should be of a short-term nature and should be completed by the end of the one-year project period for this funding opportunity.

You may submit proposals for only one of the following two categories: 1) HIV Care Innovation or 2) Infrastructure Development. Select only one category and one type of activity from the selected category. You may propose an expansion of activities currently supported with RWHAP Part C Capacity Development or Part D Supplemental funding; however, the same activity funded in FY 2016 will not be considered for funding in FY 2017. If the proposed project is an expansion of a previously funded activity, you will be required to provide a clear rationale for how the proposed activity builds upon and furthers the objectives of the previously funded activity.

 Multiple applications from an organization are not allowable.
