For Ryan White Part A, applicants must reside in Hartford, Tolland, or Middlesex county. CLICK HERE for a list of towns covered by RW Part A Transitional Grant Area (TGA). For RW Part B, preference will be given to those applicants residing in Tolland County or outside of the Hartford TGA. Clients who have capped out of RW Part A funds will also be considered.

Applicants must apply for assistance through a case manager or social worker. If you do not have a case manager CLICK HERE to view a list of agencies that provide HIV/AIDS case management. For a list of other agencies providing services in the Greater Hartford TGA please CLICK HERE.
