Uses and Use Restrictions

All funds must be expended solely for carrying out the approved project in accordance with the notice of funding opportunity, the terms and conditions of the award, and the applicable cost principles.

No more than 10 percent of total grant funds may be used for administrative costs.

All indirect costs count toward this 10 percent limit.

Funds may not be used for purchase, construction, or major alterations or renovations on any building or other facility; purchase or improvement of land; payments for clinical research; payments for nursing home care; cash payments to intended recipients of RWHAP services; research; foreign travel; to directly provide housing or health care services (e.g., HIV care, counseling and testing) that duplicate existing services; or for any item or service to the extent that payment has been made, or reasonably can be expected to be made, with respect to that item or service under any State compensation program, insurance policy, Federal or State health benefits program or by an entity that provides health services on a prepaid basis (except for a program administered by or providing the services of the Indian Health Services).

Funds may also not be used towards PrEP or nPEP medications or medical services.

As outlined in the June 22, 2016 RWHAP and PrEP program letter, the RWHAP legislation provides grant funds to be used for the care and treatment of PLWH, thus prohibiting the use of RWHAP funds for PrEP medications or related medical services, such as physician visits and laboratory costs.

However, RWHAP Part D funds can be used toward psychosocial support services, a component of family-centered care, which may include counseling and testing and information on PrEP to eligible clients? partners and affected family members, within the context of a comprehensive PrEP program.

Additionally, the purchase of sterile needles or syringes for the purposes of hypodermic injection of any illegal drug is not allowable.

Some aspects of syringe services programs are allowable with HRSA's prior approval and in compliance with HHS and HRSA policy (see: https://www.aids.gov/federal-resources/policies/syringe-services-programs/).
