View the full RFPQ Ryan White Services (Early Intervention) for  Low Income People Living with HIV/AIDS

This procurement offered interested agencies an opportunity to apply for funds under Part A of the federal Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009. Funds will be used to support early intervention services in the Portland Transitional Grant Area (TGA). Early intervention services (EIS) in the Portland TGA are defined as support provided to clients who are not in care through planning, linkage, monitoring and advocacy. Service providers collaborate with prevention and disease investigation services to identify people who are living with HIV but unaware of their status, or who are not receiving HIV medical care. Services are intended to fill gaps in services for low-income individuals who are living with HIV/AIDS disease. The Portland TGA is made up of Multnomah, Yamhill, Columbia, Washington, and Clackamas Counties in Oregon, and Clark County in Washington.
