Proposed Project: Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Act of 1990-Title IV (OMB #0915-0206)—Extension

This is a request for extension of the reporting system of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990, Title IV as amended by the Ryan White CARE Act Amendments of 1996. It authorizes a reporting system to collect information from grantees and the service providers that are their subcontractors as governed under Section 2671 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 USC 300ff-71).

Title IV provides support for coordinated HIV services and access to research for children, youth, women, and families. It supports efforts to develop comprehensive, coordinated, culturally competent, family-centered systems of care and to provide access to research for those infected or affected by HIV infection. The Title IV program supports a broad variety of interventions in health care delivery that are designed to link clients receiving health care to other essential and supporting services and to clinical research. Grants are made to public and private non-profit health centers and other appropriate public or non-profit private entities that are linked to a comprehensive health care system. This system includes clinical research for children, youth, and women. The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) within HRSA administers funds for Title IV of the CARE Act.

There are 53 grantees under Title IV's Children, Youth, Women and Families Program, with approximately 125 affiliated service providers, for a total of 178 entities who report information about the clients they serve and the services they provide. Grantees are located in 27 States, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.
