The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is
the largest Federal program focused exclusively on HIV/AIDS care. The program is for individuals living with HIV/AIDS who have no health insurance (public or private), have insufficient health care coverage, or lack financial resources to get the care they need for their HIV disease. As such, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program fills gaps in care not covered by other funding sources. (HRSA)
The Bergen-Passaic bicounty entity constitutes a single Transitional Grant Area (TGA) under Part A of the 2009 Ryan White CARE Act, which administers funding through the HIV/AIDS Bureau of the United States Department of Health and Human Services: Health Resources and Services Administration.
The CAPCO Executive Director composes grant requests that make the following Ryan White assistance available to eligible clients::
- Non-Medical Case Management;
- Psychosocial support;
- Housing assistance;
- early intervention services; and
- Medical Case Management, including treatment adherence services. (HRSA)
