HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau Coronavirus Disease 2019 Update
The Health Resources and Services Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA HAB) appreciates everything our Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program recipients, subrecipients, and stakeholders are doing to address the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency, particularly among people with HIV and the nation’s most vulnerable populations.
We continually update our Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) webpage. We recently added or updated questions on:
- Utilizing emergency financial assistance funding for grocery delivery and cell phone purchases
- HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau site visit schedule
- Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Notice of Funding Opportunity deadline extensions
Status of Funding for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Recipients
On March 27, 2020, the President signed into law the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act,” or the “CARES Act,” authorizing $90 million for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program response to COVID-19. HRSA is working to determine an expedient process to release funds to recipients when available.
