Applicants are advised that required registrations take up to a month to finalize. Funding is intended to support demonstration sites to identify, implement, refine, and evaluate emerging strategies to comprehensively screen and manage comorbidities, geriatric conditions, behavioral health, and psychosocial needs of people 50 years and older with HIV with the existing resources and infrastructure of organizations funded through the RWHAP.
This initiative will fund three components: a capacity-building provider (HRSA-22-027), demonstration sites (HRSA-22-028), and an evaluation provider (HRSA-22-029). All three components of the initiative will work together using the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) implementation science framework to conduct the following activities simultaneously:Implement emerging strategies that comprehensively screen and manage comorbidities, geriatric conditions, behavioral health, and psychosocial needs of people 50 years and older with HIV;
Assess the uptake and integration of emerging strategies;Understand implementation processes including assessing specific implementation strategies;Understand and document broader contextual factors affecting implementation;Evaluate the impact of the emerging strategies; andDocument and disseminate the emerging strategies.This funding opportunity will support organizations that have the capacity and infrastructure to successfully execute the project and that have some experience implementing emerging strategies to comprehensively screen and manage comorbidities, geriatric conditions, behavioral health, and psychosocial needs of people 50 years and older with HIV. Working in partnership with the evaluation provider and capacity-building provider, the demonstration sites will participate in evaluating their strategies and developing replication tools for use by other RWHAP recipients and subrecipients. The demonstration sites must provide comprehensive screening and management of comorbidities, geriatric conditions, behavioral health, and psychosocial needs of people 50 years and older with HIV or have an agreement with an organization that can provide these services (referred to as partner organization in the NOFO). Objectives of the demonstration sites can be found on page 7 of the NOFO.
