    HHS announces $2.21 billion in funding for HIV care, services and medication

    On October 5, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded approximately $2.21 billion in funding for counties, cities, states and local community-based organizations under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021. The program funding supports primary medical care, medication and other vital services for the nearly 560,00 people living with HIV in the United States.

    The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is administered by the Health Resources and Services (HRSA) and was established to provide care and treatment services to low-income people with HIV, with a focus on health equity and addressing social determinants of health.

    The awards are divided as follows:

    • Part A: $621.4 million to provide core medical and support services for people with HIV in highly-impacted urban areas. Click here for more information.
    • Part B: $1.3 billion to improve the quality, availability and organization of HIV health care and support services for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP). Click here for more information.
    • Part C: $179.8 million provide core medical and support services to people with HIV. Click here for more information.
    • Part D: $67.2 million to provide family-centered comprehensive HIV care and treatment for women, infants, children, and youth with HIV. Click here for more information.
    • Part F: $67.6 million to support clinical training, oral health services, quality improvement, and the development of innovative models of care through several different programs. Click here for more information.

    The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program advances HHS’s HIV/AIDS strategy to reduce new HIV transmission in the United States by 90 percent by the year 2030, through the Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) initiative. The EHE provides direct funding to 48 counties that participate in the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program, which distributed $99 million to program recipients in March 2021 in addition to FY 2021 awards.

    NACo supports full funding and reauthorization of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act and policies that facilitate local flexibility in the use of funds for HIV/AIDS prevention. We will continue to engage with federal officials and legislators to consider further steps to reduce HIV/AIDS in our communities to ensure counties have the necessary resources to meet the goals of the initiative and end the epidemic.
