State health departments with eligible city or county health departments must discuss how the state and local area will work collaboratively during the project period to ensure appropriate provision of services within the MSA or MD and document any agreements reached in a letter or agreement (LOA), which must be submitted by both parties as part of their application.  City or county health departments will be responsible for providing services to the entire MSA or specified MD.  However, in the event the city or county health department is unable or unwilling to provide services for the entire MSA or MD, the state may assume responsibility for any areas left uncovered and apply for a portion of the city or county's funding allocation commensurate with the additional responsibilities and resource needs.  City and county health departments may opt not to apply; if this occurs, their funding allocation will then be available to the state to provide services for that MSA. At a minimum, the LOA must include the following:

  • Name and address of entity providing HIV prevention services
  • Funding source (i.e., CDC PS12-1201)
  • Scope of services to be provided (i.e. a statement of the funding requested by each eligible entity, the assignment of responsibility for geographic areas, and general services to be provided)
  • Date agreement is in effect
  • Signature of authorized representatives and dated.

See the Letter of Agreement template provided in Attachment XI.

At a minimum, the LOA must include the following:

  • Name and address of entity providing HIV prevention services
  • Funding source (i.e., CDC PS12-1201)
