The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB), Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) program is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2018 for a new 3-year initiative entitled Evidence-Informed Approaches to Improving Health Outcomes for People Living with HIV (PLWH). The purpose of this program is to support a single organization that will systematically identify, catalog, disseminate, and support the replication of evidence-informed approaches and interventions to engage PLWH who are not receiving HIV health care or who are at risk of not continuing to receive HIV health care. Specifically, the intent of this initiative is to: 1) identify acuity scale tools used to determine if an individual living with HIV is likely to engage or re-engage in health care; 2) identify data utilization interventions to actively identify and intervene with PLWH who are out of care; 3) identify innovative service delivery models/set of services that are responsive to the needs of PLWH who need to be engaged/re-engaged in HIV health care; 4) determine the costs associated with each approach and/or intervention; 5) catalog these approaches and develop an implementation manual to document the implementation components; 6) translate and disseminate these approaches and/or interventions; and 7) support replication by providing technical assistance (TA) to Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) and other HIV health care service providers.
