About the Planning Council 

The Norfolk TGA Ryan White Planning Council is a federally mandated community group appointed by the Mayor of the City of Norfolk to plan the organization and delivery of services provided under Part A of the Ryan White Treatment Modernization Act.

Part A funds go to Transitional Grant Areas (TGAs) that have been hit hardest by the HIV epidemic. Part A funds are used to meet the emergency service needs of people living with HIV disease that are not met by any other health care programs.

Our Mission 

The mission of the Council is to ensure the effective and efficient delivery of medical and support services to persons affected and infected by HIV/AIDS in the Norfolk Transitional Grant Area (TGA).

The Norfolk TGA serves the following locations: the cities of Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, and the counties of Isle of Wight, James City, Gloucester, Mathews, and York in Virginia; and the county of Currituck in North Carolina.

Ryan White Planning Council Committees

Community Access Committee (CAC): The Community Access Committee is responsible to assist the Council in providing a culturally sensitive service environment, placing appropriate emphasis on underserved and hard to reach populations. The committee identifies and creates liaisons with the underserved and hard to reach communities.

Executive Committee: The Executive Committee is responsible for ensuring the orderly and integrated progression of the work of the Planning Council. It oversees the operations of the Council and also reviews and schedules recommendations by the Committees as action items on the Planning Council agenda, requiring Planning Council vote.

Strategic Planning and Assessment Committee (SPA): The Strategic Planning and Assessment (SPA) Committee is responsible for reviewing and developing comprehensive Needs Assessments to identify and address community needs. SPA leads the annual Priority Setting and Resource Allocations process, ensuring that resources are effectively distributed to meet those needs. The committee also collaborates closely with the recipient’s office to review service standards, monitor expenditures, and evaluate reallocation requests. Through these efforts, SPA ensures that our strategies are data-driven, community-focused, and aligned with our overarching goals.
