(HRI) announce the availability of $4,500,000 annually in New York State (NYS) and federal funding for five (5) years to increase the number of people who are treated and cured for hepatitis C (HCV).  As part of New York State’s (NYS’s) plan to eliminate HCV, this will be accomplished by creating a primary care-based integrated multidisciplinary model of care to serve all populations in an equitable manner, especially those currently underserved and socially disadvantaged.  Funded applicants will conduct targeted outreach, linkage and care coordination to assist people with HCV, and HIV/HCV in accessing timely HCV medical care and appropriate supportive services in a primary care setting.
