• The Northern Virginia Regional Commission is a Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency Act (Ryan White CARE Act) administrator in Northern and Northwest Virginia
  • Last year, NVRC distributed just over $2.38 million in federal funds to agencies that provide a variety of services, including medical treatment, drugs, and supportive services, to people living with HIV/AIDS in Northern Virginia and sometimes elsewhere in the Commonwealth.   Part B services can be provided to any eligible Virginia resident, but primarily focus on the Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Manassas Park; and the Counties of Arlington, Clarke, Culpeper, Fairfax, Fauquier, King George, Loudoun, Prince William, Spotsylvania, Stafford and Warren
  • Funding is divided into several parts; NVRC administers Part B and the Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI)
    1. Part B funds are a formula distribution to states, a portion of which is made available to the Northern Virginia Regional Commission for purchase of subcontracted services and technical assistance activities in Suburban Virginia
    2. NVRC also receives Ryan White funds under the Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) Grant Program.  MAI funding can only be used for education and outreach services for the specific purpose of increasing minority enrollment in Virginia’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP – a.k.a. the Virginia Medication Access Program or VA MAP) or another medication assistance program, and only for the racial and ethnic minorities indicated in the legislation
  • Ryan White funding, through sub-grants, provides direct services to: low-income, uninsured, and underinsured people living with HIV and AIDS in Northern Virginia. 
  • NVRC’s activities include the selection, distribution and monitoring of sub grantees, assessment of disease trends and design of appropriate service delivery responses
