Part A - Hard Hit Urban Areas

Ryan White 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. First is planning, which sets the framework for funding decisions. Next, Part A recipients (local governments) advertise for and award contracts to service agencies. Care is then delivered by funded agencies, which follow Ryan White standards that cover areas like quality of care and data reporting. Part A recipients monitor and manage grant funds to ensure services are delivered according to standards. HRSA project officers and technical assistance and training partners provide support to RWHAP recipients.
