Title II Issues to Consider • Core ADAP Formulary • Pros • Portability • Bring states up to a minimum • Address ADAP crisis • Cons • Disincentive for states to maintain high level contribution • Concern that core would become ceiling, not floor • Vacuum to which all CARE Act dollars would go to fill

  6. Title II Issues to Consider • Emerging Communities (ECs) • Unstable funding - Went from 39 to 28 ECs and 14 ECs eliminated • Title I and EC inequity • Incorporation of HIV cases into allocation formulas • Current Law Requires use in 2007 • CDC Estimates will be used

  8. Reauthorization Process • Congressional agenda full with SS reform and Medicaid • Need enough oxygen to do reauthorization • Simultaneous cuts in domestic health spending • Hill staff need basic education – focus of many organizations and coalitions • Senate HELP and House Energy and Commerce • Senate HELP taking the lead • Initial discussions with staff underway • AIDS is a global issue for most staff • ADAP “fix” to be a major focus

  9. What Can You Do? • Congress relies on experts to assess programs they fund and administer • You are that expert • You don’t have to come to Washington to interact with congressional offices • District offices • Town hall meetings • Mailings • Regular phone calls • Become a resource to staff
