Justification for the Exception to Competition

Funding critical HIV medical care and treatment services for homeless populations in Baltimore, MD area will be continued through a noncompetitive program expansion supplement to an existing grant award to Chase Brexton Health Services. This is a temporary award made because the previous grant recipient servicing this population is unable to satisfactorily meet legislative and program requirements. Chase Brexton, a currently funded Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part C grantee, is the best qualified and geographically positioned grantee able to provide the necessary continuity of HIV care and treatment for the targeted population. The initial supplemental funding will provide support for three months. Based on satisfactory performance, continued need, and availability of funds, a second and final supplemental award for these services will be awarded for twelve months. Further funding beyond December 31, 2008, for this service area will be competitively awarded during the next Part C HIV Early Intervention Services (EIS) competing application process. The next available Part C EIS open competing cycle will occur in fiscal year 2009.
