This supplement will cover the time period from September 1, 2011, through August 31, 2012.
This Federal Register notice announces the non-competitive extension with funds of the Enhancing Linkages to HIV Care and Treatment in Jail Settings Initiative, Demonstration Sites (hereafter referred to as the SPNS Enhancing Linkages Initiative) in order to complete linkages to HIV medical care and support services for HIV positive individuals returning from jail settings to the community, follow-up data collection, analysis and dissemination of findings and lessons learned. The findings generated by this Initiative are capable of impacting service delivery systems and increasing linkages to critical HIV care and support services if the model programs can be adapted in jails and HIV service delivery settings across the United States, as well as to demonstrate that HIV testing and linkage to care in jail settings, and transitioning individuals to HIV care and treatment in the community is feasible and effective.End Preamble Start Supplemental Information

Justification for the Exception to Competition
Critical funding for linkages to HIV medical care, treatment services and supportive services to clients enrolled Start Printed Page 29254in the SPNS Enhancing Linkages Initiative will be continued through a non-competitive extension with funds to 10 existing grantees of record. This is a one-time extension with Part F Funds, as the grant recipients did not begin enrolling clients until late into the second year of the project period due to delays in receiving required human subjects research approvals. The SPNS Enhancing Linkages Initiative grantees are the best qualified to ensure the continuity of care, and provide critical services to the service population until all clients are successfully transitioned to routine Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program care and services.Start Further Info
