Per Appendix B, the Los Angeles EMA may apply for up to $45,610,794 in funding to provide services within Los Angeles County. Any applicants that request funding over this ceiling will not be considered for funding under this application.
The RWHAP Part A provides non-discretionary formula grants that include Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) funds and discretionary supplemental awards. These funds assist eligible areas in developing or enhancing access to a comprehensive continuum of high quality, community-based care for low-income people living with HIV (PLWH) within the EMA/TGA and strengthening strategies to reach minority populations. HRSA awards two-thirds of the funds available for EMAs and TGAs according to a formula based on the number of living cases of HIV/AIDS in the EMAs and TGAs. HRSA awards the remaining funds as discretionary supplemental awards based on the demonstration of additional need by the eligible EMAs and TGAs, and as MAI funding. HRSA determines MAI awards based on the number of minorities living with HIV and AIDS in a jurisdiction. If determined eligible for priority funding, HRSA will calculate the additional amount awarded, and that amount will be included in the final award.
