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.
