The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Program Initiative titled Supporting Replication (SURE) of Housing Interventions in the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (SURE Housing).
Donor Name: Health Resources and Services Administration
Country: United States
State: All States
Type of Grant: Grant
Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 01/21/2022
Size of the Grant: $800,000
Grant Duration: 4 Years
The SURE Housing initiative has two separate yet coordinated recipients: the Evaluation Provider (EP) funded under this announcement (HRSA-22-032); and an Implementation and Technical Assistance Provider (ITAP) funded under a different announcement (HRSA-22-031). Both the ITAP and the EP must coordinate activities and share information and data in the design, implementation, evaluation, communication, and dissemination of this initiative. The success of this initiative depends on the collective success of the individual components, with the ultimate goal of communicating and disseminating replication tools to the broader RWHAP, HIV, and housing communities.
The purpose of this funding announcement (HRSA-22-032) is to support a single organization that serves as the EP and uses the HRSA HAB implementation science framework (HAB IS) to evaluate housing-related evidence-based interventions, evidence-informed interventions, and emerging strategies (collectively, “intervention strategies”) for the following three key populations of people with HIV experiencing unstable housing:
- lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ+) people;
- youth and young adults (ages 13-24); and
- people who have been justice involved (i.e., people impacted by the justice system).
The ITAP, funded under the companion announcement (HRSA-22-031), will select and fund implementation sites under individual subawards; provide implementation-related technical assistance to the sites; and developing a communication plan and replication tools for widespread adoption of these housing-related intervention strategies for these three key populations of people with HIV experiencing unstable housing. The EP will develop and implement a multi-site evaluation of these intervention strategies and provide evaluation-related technical assistance. Throughout this initiative, the EP will work closely with the ITAP, which will provide implementation-related TA to the sites. The EP’s evaluation findings will support the ITAP in promoting the communications and dissemination of relevant replication materials for widespread adoption in other RWHAP settings in need of effective strategies to better serve people with HIV experiencing unstable housing.
- HRSA estimates approximately $800,000 to be available annually to fund one recipient. The actual amount available will not be determined until enactment of the final FY 2022 federal appropriation. You may apply for a ceiling amount of up to $800,000 total cost (includes both direct and indirect, facilities, and administrative costs) per year.
- The period of performance is August 1, 2022 through July 31, 2026 (4 years).
