HIV/AIDS

Ryan White CARE Act Funding

This is the source of the majority of public funds that go to state and local governments to deal with HIV/AIDS needs.  The Act has been funding AIDS programs for over 12 years and contains four Titles plus some additional programs.

Title I is for cities (called emergency metropolitan areas (EMAs) in the Act), that have been hard hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.  Florida has six qualifying EMAs: Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, Tampa-Saint Petersburg, and West Palm Beach.  Each EMA must establish an HIV Health Services Planning Council to determine how government grants will be spent.

Title II is for states. The federal government makes a grant to each state every year.  Title II money can be spent on a wide array of services and is also used to fund the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) that is used to help people who otherwise would not be able to afford AIDS medications.

Title III money is awarded to organizations for three broad purposes and programs: the capacity building grants program; the planning grants program; and a program to provide early intervention services.

Title IV awards money for projects specifically designed to meet the needs of women, infants, children, youth, and their families.  Also, several additional programs have been added to the Ryan White Act, including a category called Special Projects of National Significance and a program to increase access to dental care for people living with HIV.

The web site for the Ryan White CARE Act contains much more information about this very important source of funding for HIV/AIDS services and programs.  It also offers information about available grants and application processes and forms.

ORAL HEALTH

Centers for Research to Reduce Disparities in Oral Health (U54)

Letters of Intent Receipt Date(s): October 15, 2007
Application Receipt Date(s): November 15, 2007

Purpose: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits applications for Centers for Research to Reduce Disparities in Oral Health (CRRDOH). The purpose of this initiative is to support interventional research that will have a clinically meaningful impact on caries, oral and pharyngeal cancer, and/or periodontal disease, and that will influence clinical practice, health policy, community and/or individual action and ultimately eliminate disparities in vulnerable subgroups of the U.S. population. These populations include racial and ethnic minorities, low income groups and persons with special needs. The CRRDOH will provide a venue for the 1) establishment of interdisciplinary research teams to conduct studies that emphasize prevention and translation in communities, 2) training and career development of researchers from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, 3) accelerated dissemination and implementation of research findings to benefit health disparity populations, and 4) development and maintenance of core facilities.
