This notice announces the opportunity to apply for fiscal year (FY) 2020 funding under the Improving Care and Treatment Coordination: Focusing on Black Women with HIV – Evaluation and Technical Assistance Provider (ETAP) program. Funding will be provided in the form of a cooperative agreement to support a single organization to lead a multi-site evaluation and provide technical assistance (TA) to a cohort of up to seven demonstration sites funded under a separate announcement number, HRSA-20-116: Improving Care and Treatment Coordination: Focusing on Black Women with HIV – Demonstration Sites. The awarded ETAP organization will evaluate the implementation of the demonstration sites’ bundled interventions and their outcomes on the HIV care continuum for future replication and scale-up in other Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) provider organizations. These demonstration sites are supported for up to three years and tasked to design, implement, and evaluate the use of bundled interventions for Black women with HIV. Bundled interventions are a group of evidence-informed practices put together into a package that when implemented together produces better health outcomes than when the practices are delivered separately.1 Bundled interventions will address socio-cultural health determinants, expand the delivery and utilization of comprehensive HIV care and treatment services, support continuous engagement in care, and improve health outcomes for Black women with HIV in a culturally sensitive and responsive manner. HRSA will award grants under this funding announcement to entities in severely underserved areas that contain high populations of Black women with HIV. The ETAP will also provide TA and capacity building to demonstration sites by facilitating peer-to-peer collaborative learning on the interventions. In addition, the ETAP will lead dissemination of evaluation findings, best practices and lessons learned, and promote the replication of successful bundled interventions in other Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) providers and other health care settings. Because award recipients under both NOFOs (HRSA-20-115 and HRSA-20-116) will need to work together to be successful, HRSA, HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) encourages you to read and familiarize yourself with the program expectations of the companion NOFO, HRSA-20-116 (Improving Care and Treatment Coordination: Focusing on Black Women with HIV –Demonstration Sites) The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health MHAF project, authorized under Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (P.L. 116-94), Division A, Title II, is also supported, in part, through SPNS, authorized under 42 U.S.C. § 300ff-101 (section 2691 of the PHS Act).
