Twelve grants and 14 cooperative agreements totaling $8.6 million has been released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to fund oral health care, training and technical assistance for medically underserved populations affected by HIV/AIDS.
The twelve grants totaling $3,320,299 are being awarded through the Community-Based Dental Partnership Program of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act. The program supports oral health care for underserved rural and urban HIV-positive populations and training for dental providers.
Fourteen cooperative agreements will provide training and technical assistance to CARE Act grantees and support peer education and training. These include eight cooperative agreements totaling $2.4 million to AIDS service organizations to develop technical assistance for CARE Act grantees, and two agreements totaling $910,000 that target technical assistance to women, infants, children, youth and families under Title IV of the CARE Act.
The remaining four cooperative agreements, totaling almost $2 million and funded under the Minority AIDS Initiative Fund, will support three Peer Education Training Sites and one Resource and Evaluation Center.
These entities provide technical assistance and training to HIV/AIDS peer educators and the organizations that employ them. The objective is to increase the number of HIV/AIDS peer treatment educators within CARE Act-funded programs.
