During each federal funding cycle, the CAEAR Coalition advocates on behalf of people living with HIV/AIDS for adequate federal funding for the Ryan White Program and End the Epidemic (EHE) Initiative. For over 30 years, CAEAR Coalition has been instrumental in securing appropriation increases. It has helped to increase Part A appropriations from $88 million to over $680 million and Part C appropriations from $76 million to over $209 million.

Through re-granting of Ryan White funds from Part A grantees and direct funding for Part C agencies, the Ryan White Program provides monetary awards to over 5,000 AIDS Services Organizations (ASOs) in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and six U.S. Pacific territories/associated jurisdictions. CAEAR Coalition has successfully lobbied to add service categories to ensure comprehensive care for people living with HIV/AIDS, making the Ryan White Program unique among federal disease-specific funding programs.

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Part A Program funds Eligible Metropolitan Areas (EMAs) and Transitional Grant Areas (TGAs) that are most affected by the HIV epidemic. The CAEAR Coalition advocates on behalf of all the Ryan White Part A jurisdictions.
