Funding

System-level Workforce Capacity Building for Integrating HIV Primary Care in Community Health Care Settings - Demonstration Sites

Description
Grant Amount: Approximately $4,500,000 is expected to be available annually to fund up to fifteen grantees.

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2014 Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Program initiative, System-level Workforce Capacity Building for Integrating HIV Primary Care in Community Healthcare Settings – Demonstration Sites. The purpose of this grant program is to support organizations to promote the design, implementation, and evaluation of system-level change in staffing structures that improve health outcomes along the HIV Care Continuum. Applicants must propose innovative strategies to increase their capacity to achieve efficient and sustainable service delivery practices that both optimize human resources and improve quality outcomes.

This initiative seeks to enhance the capacity and readiness of funded organizations to adapt and re-align their workforce systems to improve the provision of quality care to people living with HIV (PLWH). Funding will be provided to support organizations to promote the design, implementation, and evaluation of system-level changes in staffing structures that improve health outcomes along the HIV Care Continuum.

Applicants must propose innovative strategies to increase their capacity to achieve efficient and sustainable service delivery practices that both optimize human resources and improve health outcomes. Demonstration projects will implement and evaluate innovative Practice Transformative Models (PTMs) for the delivery of HIV treatment and comprehensive care services through workforce efficiencies that improve health outcomes. Evaluation of these innovative PTMs will identify best practices and methods to support organizations in adapting and re-aligning their workforce in a changing healthcare landscape, as well as factors that increase the potential for successful integration of HIV care into primary care and community healthcare settings serving vulnerable populations. Awardees will also be required to participate in a comprehensive multi-site evaluation throughout the four year project period led by an Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center (ETAC). The ETAC will identify and document successful PTMs and best practices for purposes of dissemination and replication at the national level. Funding for the ETAC to coordinate the initiative’s multi-site evaluation is being made available under a separate announcement (HRSA-14-058). Dissemination of successful PTMs and best practices will help to build capacity and readiness of the HIV primary care workforce to identify, link, and retain PLWH on a path towards achieving viral load suppression. Successful applicants also will be required to partner with their Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Regional AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC) for clinical training activities.
