The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announced approximately $2.21 billion in Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding for cities, counties, states, and local community-based organizations in fiscal year (FY) 2021. This funding, through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), supports a comprehensive system of HIV primary medical care, medication, and essential support services critical to improving the health outcomes of more than 560,000 people with HIV in the United States.

"For more than three decades, HHS has driven federal efforts to end the HIV epidemic in our country and improve health outcomes for people with HIV," said HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra. "These funds support viral suppression that saves lives, reduces health disparities, and slows the spread of HIV. We will continue to support the Biden-Harris Administration's goal of ending the HIV epidemic in the United States."

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides care and treatment services to low-income people with HIV, with a strong focus on health equity and addressing social determinants of health. The program serves approximately 50 percent of all people with diagnosed HIV in the United States. In 2019, 88.1 percent of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program clients who received HIV medical care were virally suppressed, up from 69.5 percent in 2010.

"Our Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program is a groundbreaking effort that has made extraordinary progress over the years toward ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S.," said HRSA Acting Administrator Diana Espinosa. "These grants support life-saving care, treatment, and medication that improves health outcomes and reduces HIV transmission to patients across the country."

HRSA's Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program also awarded $99 million through Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) funding in March 2021, as part of a Department-wide initiative to reduce new HIV transmission in the United States by 90 percent by 2030.

Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Fiscal Year 2021 Awards:

Under Part A of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, approximately $621.4 million was awarded to 52 metropolitan areas to provide core medical and support services for people with HIV. These grants were awarded to highly-impacted urban areas with the highest number of people with HIV and AIDS. For a list of the FY 2021 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part A award recipients, visit

In addition, 29 states and territories were also awarded approximately $10.2 million in Part B Minority AIDS Initiative grants.

SPNS supports the development of innovative models of HIV care and treatment strategies using implementation science while promoting the dissemination and replication of successful interventions to support underserved populations. Through these special projects, SPNS recipients implement a variety of interventions, which contribute to the advancement of public health knowledge and the goal of ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S. For a list of the FY 2021 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program SPNS award recipients, visit https://hab.hrsa.gov/about-ryan-white-hivaids-program/part-f-special-projects-national-significance-spns-program/fy2021-awards.
