Justification for the Exception to Competition
Critical funding for HIV medical care and treatment services to clients in Shreveport, Louisiana, will be continued through a non-competitive replacement award to an existing grant award to the Louisiana State University, Health Sciences Center, Viral Disease Clinic. This is a non-competitive one-time replacement award because the previous grant recipient serving this population notified HRSA that it would not continue in the program after the fiscal year (FY) 2010 award was made. Louisiana State University, Health Sciences Center, Viral Disease Clinic is the best qualified grantee for this supplement, since it serves many of the former grantee's patients and is the closest Part C Program to the former grantee. Further funding beyond
June 30, 2011, for this service area will be competitively awarded during the Part C HIV Early Intervention Service competing application process for FY 2011.Start Further Info
