RYAN WHITE HIV/AIDS PROGRAM For carrying out title XXVI of the PHS Act with respect to the Ryan White HIV/AIDS program, $2,293,781,000, of which $1,970,881,000 shall remain available to the Secretary through September 30, 2016, for parts A and B of title XXVI of the PHS Act, and of which not less than $900,313,000 shall be for State AIDS Drug Assistance Programs under the authority of section 2616 or 311(c) of such Act: Provided, That in addition to amounts provided herein, $25,000,000 shall be available from amounts available under section 241 of the PHS Act to carry out parts A, B, C, and D of title XXVI of the PHS Act to fund Special Projects of National Significance under section 2691. • COMMENT Remainder of 2013- Funding Begins 1/19/2014 (because of 3 day -CR) and end September 30, 2014.
FY 2015 – Begins October 1, 2014- September 30, 2015. FY 2016- Begins October 1, 2015 – September 30,2016. So it appears that the RWCA was appropriated these amounts until Sept 30, 2016. Either this is a major typo or the program will have to last 32 months with just one years of PRE-ACA funding.
