HIV Coordinators

The HIV Coordinators were organized under the SAMHSA/CSAT State Collaborative Activities Grant to NASADAD. HIV Coordinators are assigned by the NASADAD member to manage the SAPT Block Grant activities regarding the HIV set-aside. This funding requires that designated States utilize a portion of SAPT Block Grant funds for Early Intervention Counseling and Testing. NASADAD hosts quarterly conference calls with the HIV Coordinators in selected States and SAMHSA staff to give the HIV Coordinators a chance to exchange information with SAMHSA, receiving updates about Federal initiatives and guidance on issues and questions. The calls also allow participants to hear from national and State speakers on innovative practices and services that address special populations.
