Ryan White Program Income
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) has issued a considerable amount of guidance regarding program income over the past two years. That guidance has addressed:
- HAB treatment of 340B program income
- Attribution of program income among federal projects when grantees have multiple funding streams
- Permissible and impermissible uses of RWHAP program income
One of the problems grantees face with HAB’s guidance is that, while conceptually straight forward, it can be very difficult to apply to complex health care operation. This two-day dive into this critical issue will include practical application of these requirements to real world scenarios and discussion of strategies for successfully managing, and properly expending, one’s program income.
FTLF attorneys Jason Reddish and Scott Sheffler combine their experience in 340B, federal grant management, and cost allocation to detail and explain HAB’s issuances and discuss strategies for navigating these requirements.
