The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) administers the Part B program through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB), Division of State HIV/AIDS Programs (DSHAP). The purpose of this program is to supplement the services otherwise provided by the State and is determined by the applicant’s ability to demonstrate the need in the State based on an objective and quantified basis. The authority for this grant program: Sections 2620 of Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act sections 2611-23, (42 U.S.C. § 300ff-29a) as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-87). The State/Territory must demonstrate the severity of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the State/Territory, using quantifiable data on HIV epidemiology, co-morbidities, cost of care, the service needs of emerging populations, unmet need for core medical services, and unique service delivery challenges. Applicants should explain why supplemental funding for health services is needed to provide necessary services for people living with HIV and AIDS in the State/Territory. Factors to be considered in assessing demonstrated need for the FY 2013 application include the following: (1) The unmet need for HIV-related services as determined by section 2617(b) of the PHS Act; (2) An increasing need for HIV/AIDS-related services, including relative rates of increase in the number of living cases of HIV/AIDS; (3) The relative rates of increase in the number of living cases of HIV/AIDS within new or emerging subpopulations; (4) The current prevalence of HIV/AIDS; (5) Relevant factors related to the cost and complexity of delivering health care to individuals with HIV/AIDS in the eligible area; (6) The impact of co-morbid factors, including co-occurring conditions including high rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, substance use, severe mental illness, and other co-morbid factors; (7) The prevalence of homelessness; (8) The prevalence of individuals who were released from federal, state or local prisons during the preceding three years, and had HIV/AIDS on the date of their release; (9) Relevant factors that limit access to health care including geographic variation, adequacy of health insurance coverage and language barriers; and 10) Impact of a decline in the amount received in formula funding on services available to all individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible under the title. When describing demonstrated need, applicants should document the use of multiple data sets, such as HIV/AIDS epidemiologic data, co-morbidity data, poverty and insurance status data, current utilization data and assessments of emerging populations with special needs.
