Notice of a Class Deviation from Competition Requirements for the HIV/AIDS Bureau's (HAB) Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC), Graduate Medical Education (GME) Program (H4A).
HRSA will be issuing non-competitive awards under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, AETC/GME Program. Approximately $450,000 will be made available in the form of a grant to current grantees (listed in chart below) during the budget period of July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. This will: (1) Continue the current cohort and provide support for one additional cohort of graduate medical residents; (2) continue to provide workforce development that is integral to the national interest through meeting National HIV/AIDS Strategy goals, and that enhances the implementation of the Affordable Care Act; and (3) provide a more robust program evaluation that will yield sufficient data; and aid HRSA/HAB in future decisions regarding the replication and the viability of a subsequent GME competition. The scope of work does not change.

Intended recipients of the awards are the three incumbent grantees of record (listed in chart below). The amount of the non-competitive awards is $150,000 per grantee.
CFDA Number: 93.145
Project period: July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015.
Justification: The GME Program, which has three funded grantees: Yale University (H4AHA22762), Research Foundation of the State University of New York (H4AHA22761), and Family Medicine Residency of Idaho (H4AHA22760), is scheduled to end June 30, 2014. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS AETC/GME Program seeks to provide a one-time non-competitive award in order to avoid interruption in continued HIV primary medical care education at these three universities by completing the current cohort and producing one more cohort of graduates, thus providing additional time to accurately assess and evaluate the success of the program. This is a primary care training group, which helps link critical HIV/AIDS resources within and across communities to help expand the clinician workforce capacity to meet the growing demand for HIV care by training their medical residents. The purpose of the GME program (which ties directly to the shortage of primary health care providers in HIV/AIDS care in the United States) is to fund public and nonprofit private entities and schools, and academic health science centers in order to expand opportunities to train medical residents in HIV/AIDS care and treatment. Grant funds are requested in order to accomplish this purpose and meet the three objectives described in the above summary. This funding is intended to bridge the gap until this GME program may be competed again.
