About Us

Denver HIV Resources (DHR) is a Part A Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Part A funds are granted to metropolitan areas across the United States and U.S. territories that are most severely impacted by the HIV epidemic. These areas are called transitional grant areas (TGAs). The Denver TGA includes Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties. Part A funds are used to provide core medical and support services for people with HIV (PWH) living in the Denver TGA. The Denver HIV Resources Planning Council (DHRPC) reviews data to determine the needs of the HIV community and makes decisions on funding allocations for each service category. Funding is then distributed to agencies in the Denver TGA (also known as Part A subrecipients) to provide core and support services that meet the service standard requirements outlined by DHR.

Funding Information 

The Part A grant award includes formula and supplemental components as well as the Minority AIDS Initiative (MAI) funds, which supports services for minority populations. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 (March 1, 2020 – Feb. 28, 2021), DHR was awarded $7,670,393.00 in Ryan White Part A Program funds. Funding was allocated to 15 agencies to provide medical and support services to people with HIV (PWH) in the Denver TGA.  

Data Information


Part A subrecipients are required to enter data into the Denver HIV Resource's CAREWare program as a condition for funding. CAREWare data entry is due monthly and the prior month's information must be completed by the 10th of each month. 

Single Payer Web Application (SPWA)

The single payer web application is a portal for all emergency financial and housing assistance submissions to the Single Payer Office. It is designed to improve cross-organization financial assistance application processing. 

Clinical Quality Management

The Clinical Quality Management (CQM) Program recommends and manages systems-level quality improvement initiatives for the Denver RW Part A Program to positively impact access to and engagement in care, client health outcomes, health inequities, and client experience and satisfaction. The CQM Program works closely with the Quality Committee, a group of service providers and community members who advise and guide the program’s quality improvement work. The CQM Program also monitors Performance Measures to understand program progress and effectiveness. The CQM Program is also focused on addressing health inequities for the priority populations; MSM of Color, Latina and Black Women, Transgender People, and Youth ages 13-24, using quality improvement strategies. 

Service Standards

Service Standards are the minimum requirements that programs are expected to meet when providing HIV care and support services funded by the Denver Ryan White HIV/AIDS (RWHAP) Part A program. Part A subrecipients must follow the Universal Standards in the Service Standards. Part A subrecipients are also responsible for meeting the standards outlined for each service category for which they receive funding. DHR evaluates program adherence to Service Standards during site visits. Part A subrecipients may exceed the requirements of the Service Standards, though this is not required and will not be evaluated during site visits. It is important that subrecipients are familiar with the Service Standards that apply to them. Denver HIV Resources Planning Council (DHRPC) initiatives and DHR programmatic updates may result in adjustments to the service standards during the Fiscal Year (FY).
