Supporting HIV care through education and innovation

Topic: Part A - Hard Hit Urban Areas

Part A funds HIV/AIDS care in metropolitan areas hardest hit by the epidemic. Medical and support services for underserved individuals are put into place through a sequence of activities. Planning (usually through Planning Councils) sets the basis for funding decisions and award of contracts to service agencies. Care is then delivered by agencies that follow Ryan White standards that cover areas like quality of care and data reporting. Part A grantees monitor and manage grant funds. HRSA project officers and technical assistance and training services help Part A carry out these responsibilities. Learn more about Part A—formula and supplementary grants, eligible services, and more.
