Additionally, this total includes the President’s 2011 World AIDS Day ADAP emergency relief funding (ERF) of $35 million. The Ryan White Part B base FY2014 funding was reduced by $1.5 million from FY2012 levels. The President’s FY2014 budget request included an increase of $10 million for ADAP and it flat funded the Part B base from FY2012.
The FY2013 ERF funds will be awarded to ADAPs later this summer. The FY2013 ERF funds consist of$65 million dollars in competing continuation funds for existing ERF grantees and $10 million in new competing funds available to ADAPs not previously receiving ERF. The budget period for these FY2013 ERF funds will be six months (through March 31, 2014) to allow future alignment of the FY2014 ADAP ERF (if funds are available) and FY2014 Part B base/ADAP earmark awards.
