The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announces the availability of fiscal year 2010 funds for a cooperative agreement program for health departments to increase HIV testing opportunities for populations disproportionately affected by HIV –– primarily (1) African American and Hispanic men and women, and (2) men who have sex with men (MSM) and injection drug users (IDUs), regardless of race or ethnicity –– and increase the proportion of HIV-infected persons in these populations who are aware of their infection and are linked to appropriate services. The program is also intended to identify strategies for leveraging resources to maximize the yield and sustainability of routine HIV screening programs in healthcare settings (for example, working with participating healthcare facilities to implement strategies for obtaining reimbursement for HIV screening from 3rd party payers, promoting routine HIV screening in healthcare facilities not directly involved in the program). This FOA represents an expansion of the initial 3-year Expanded HIV Testing Initiative which was funded under program announcement PS 07-768.
This FOA is limited to health departments in jurisdictions with at least 175 estimated combined AIDS diagnoses among Blacks/African Americans and Latinos in 2007. Eligible jurisdictions are as follows: Alabama, Arizona, California, Chicago, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Houston, Illinois, Los Angeles, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York City, New York State, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Puerto Rico, San Francisco, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. This includes five new jurisdictions that were not included in the initial program under PS 07-768: Alabama, Arizona, Illinois, Puerto Rico, and San Francisco. The jurisdictions that are eligible for this program accounted for the following percentages of AIDS diagnoses among these populations in the United States in 2007: Blacks/African Americans – 94%, Latinos – 91%, MSM – 86%, IDUs – 93%, and MSM/IDUs – 85%. Community-based organizations; for-profit entities; public non-profit, private non-profit, faith-based, and tribal organizations; and colleges and universities are not eligible to apply for funding under this FOA.
