The Funding Principles are guiding principles that the Ryan White Services Division uses when contracting for services. The Needs, Resources, and Allocations Committee revisits the Funding Principles annually.
The Health Resources and Services Administration requires all Ryan White Part A Planning Councils to conduct an annual assessment of the administrative mechanism. This evaluates how efficiently and rapidly grantees disburse funding to the areas of greatest need. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the degree of satisfaction providers had with BPHC’s administration of Ryan White Part A funding. The Boston EMA Ryan White Planning Council’s role was reviewing the survey results and providing recommendations to BPHC on where to make improvements.
