The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) is requesting a class deviation from the competition requirements in order to provide one-year extensions with funds to 346 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Part C HIV Early Intervention Services Program Existing Geographic Service Area (EISEGA) recipients. The purpose of the Part C EISEGA program is to provide HIV primary care in the outpatient setting to targeted low income, underinsured people living with HIV. HAB is finalizing an evaluation of the Part C EISEGA program and development of a new data-driven methodology. This methodology is aimed at ensuring that awards are based on a consistent approach to promote a rational and sustainable allocation of resources while ensuring responsiveness to geographic and healthcare financing considerations, indicators of need, and results along the HIV care continuum. HAB expects to re-compete the entire program in fiscal year (FY) 2018. One-year extensions with funds for all 346 Part C EISEGA recipients enables HAB to finalize the evaluation and methodology development and engage recipients and relevant stakeholders with regard to this new approach prior to implementation and without disrupting the provision of critical HIV primary medical care services to the current RWHAP clients served by these recipients. Pending the availability of funds, the amount of each FY 2017 award will be based on a proportion of the FY 2016 Part C EISEGA award to each of the 346 recipients, respectively.
