What is Priority Setting and Resource Allocations?
The Planning Council uses needs assessment data and data from several other sources to prioritize and allocate resources to the highest-ranked services to people living with HIV in the EMA (priority setting). After it sets priorities, the planning council decides how much RWHAP Part A funding will be utilized for each of these service priorities. In allocating resources, planning councils focus on the legislative requirement that 75 percent of funds must be prioritized for core services and not more than 25 percent for support services unless the EMA has obtained a core medical waiver from HRSA.
