Part A - Planning Councils

Part A Planning Councils of HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) are appointed by the Chief Elected Official (CEO) for the Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA)/Transitional Grant Area (TGA). Planning Councils do needs assessments and then set HIV/AIDS related service priorities for RWHAP Part A funds, based on identified needs. Planning Councils are also required to jointly develop a comprehensive plan with the Ryan White Part A recipient.
