Funding

Supporting the Continuum of Care: Building Ryan White Program Grantee Capacity to Enroll Eligible Clients in Affordable Care Act Health Coverage Programs

Description
Grant Amount: Approximately $1,900,000 is expected to be available annually to fund one grantee.

The purpose of Supporting the Continuum of Care: Building Ryan White Program Grantee Capacity to Enroll Eligible Clients in ACA Supported Health Coverage is to build the capacity of RWHAP grantees and related providers to provide outreach to PLWH and to screen and enroll eligible PLWH in expanded health insurance during the annual open enrollment period beginning in October 2013. The announcement will fund one Cooperative Agreement to provide technical assistance to accomplish three main objectives: (1) assess RWHAP grantees’ technical assistance needs related to building capacity for outreach and enrollment of minority PLWH into expanded health insurance options; (2) work with HRSA, CDC, SAMSHA and CMS to assess best practices for minority client outreach and enrollment activities that would facilitate access to health care in the Medicaid expansion and Health Insurance Marketplaces (Exchanges); and (3) work with HHS agencies and national organization partners to develop strategies, tools, and trainings for RWHAP grantees to utilize for outreach and enrollment activities.

The geographic range of the proposal is nationwide and will focus on the racial and ethnic minority clients currently served by the RWHAP. The main activities for the three objectives are:
(1) To assess RWHAP grantees’ technical assistance needs related to building capacity for outreach and enrollment of minority PLWH into expanded health insurance options;
(2) To work with HRSA, CDC, SAMSHA and CMS to assess best practices for minority client outreach and enrollment activities that would facilitate access to health care in the Medicaid expansion and Health Insurance Marketplaces (Exchanges);
(3) Work with HHS agencies and national organization partners to develop strategies, tools, and trainings for RWHAP grantees to utilize for outreach and enrollment activities.

Application Process
HRSA requires applicants for this funding opportunity announcement to apply electronically through Grants.gov. The registration and application process protects applicants against fraud and ensures that only authorized representatives from an organization can submit an application. Applicants are responsible for maintaining these registrations, which should be completed well in advance of submitting an application. All applicants must submit in this manner unless they obtain a written exemption from this requirement in advance by the Director of HRSA’s Division of Grants Policy. Applicants must request an exemption in writing from DGPWaivers@hrsa.gov, and provide details as to why they are technologically unable to submit electronically through the Grants.gov portal. If requesting a waiver, include the following in the e-mail request: the HRSA announcement number for which the organization is seeking relief, the organization’s DUNS number, the name, address, and telephone number of the organization and the name and telephone number of the Project Director as well as the Grants.gov Tracking Number (GRANTXXXX) assigned to the submission along with a copy of the “Rejected with Errors” notification as received from Grants.gov. HRSA’s Division of Grants Policy is the only office authorized to grant waivers.

However, the application must still be submitted by the deadline. Suggestion: submit application to Grants.gov at least two days before the deadline to allow for any unforeseen circumstances.
