The Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), HIV/AIDS Bureau, through its Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Program, has funded a national initiative to support the design, implementation, and evaluation of interventions that coordinate HIV care and treatment, housing, and employment services to improve health outcomes for people living with HIV. Boston University and its partners are working as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Provider (ETAP) for this 3-year project to promote access to housing, employment, and HIV care for people from low-income and racial and ethnic minority communities. During the course of the initiative, the ETAP will:


Develop and implement a mixed-methods, multisite evaluation of SPNS interventions


Provide training and technical assistance to implement housing and employment supports that achieve quality HIV and behavioral health care


Produce and disseminate products that can be replicated in other Ryan White and community partners to improve the health outcomes for PLWH in racial/ethnic minority communities

This project is supported by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary’s Minority AIDS Initiative Fund under grant number U90HA31449 and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB), Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) program Initiative Improving Health Outcomes Through the Coordination of Supportive Employment & Housing Services for $700,000.
