Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $4,534,378.00 in grant monies to fund the Ryan White HIV Care Part A grant program, for the period March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019. The total amount funded for this period is $4,534,378.00.

The HIV Care Part A grant’s purpose is to improve access to medical care for persons living with HIV or AIDS living in Central Ohio. The goal is that each client will achieve viral suppression, which improves their quality of life and reduces the risk of spreading the infection. This grant will enhance medical services, both somatic and behavioral health. It will pay for HIV related doctor’s visits, mental health services, substance abuse services, and other services allowable by the grant. It also will strengthen the case management and linkage to care (or patient navigation) elements.

In 2016, The Ryan White Part A program for the Central Ohio area served over 2,400 people living with HIV through several programs including outpatient/ambulatory medical care, mental health services, medical case management, early intervention services, housing services, non-medical case management, emergency financial assistance and medical transportation.

Emergency action is requested to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City's accounting system as soon as possible. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.

FISCAL IMPACT: The HIV Care Part A Grant Program is entirely funded by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and does not generate revenue or require a City match. ($4,534,378.00)
