organizational capacity to respond to the changing health care landscape and increase access to high quality, family-centered HIV primary health care services for low income, uninsured, and underserved WICY with HIV.
HRSA intends funding under this program to support one short-term activity that can be completed by the end of the one-year period of performance.
You may propose an expansion of an activity previously supported under FY2019 or FY2020 RWHAP Part D Supplemental (HRSA-19-026; HRSA-20-068) or Part C Capacity Development funding (HRSA-19-031; HRSA-20-067) for either an HIV Care Innovation or Infrastructure Development activity; however, HRSA will not fund the same activity in FY 2021 as HRSA funded previously in FY2019 or FY202 0. If the proposed project is an expansion of a previously funded activity, you must provide a clear rationale for how the proposed activity builds upon and furthers the objectives of the previously funded HIV Care Innovation or Infrastructure Development activity.
