HRSA/HAB is requesting comments regarding reauthorization of the Ryan White legislation, which will take place in 2013. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is the largest Federal program specifically dedicated to providing HIV care and treatment. It funds heavily impacted metropolitan areas, States, and local community-based organizations to provide medical care, medications, and support services to more than half a million people each year. Currently authorized by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, the program will be up for reauthorization by the U.S. Congress in 2013.

To inform that reauthorization, HRSA encourages stakeholders, including grantees, advocacy organizations, State and local administrators, and other members of the Ryan White and HIV/AIDS communities to provide comments on all aspects of the program. Comments should be organized under headings that clearly indicate which Part (Part A, B, C, D or F) the comment addresses. HRSA has established a Web page with details on how to submit comments.
Comments are due July 31, 2012
HRSA will hold at least four webinar or teleconference listening sessions over the next few months, each focused on a different geographic region. Dates, times, and other details will be available in near future.
