Our mission

The mission of the HIV Health and Human Services Planning Council of New York is that people living with HIV and AIDS in the New York EMA will have access to and maintain appropriate, quality services across the continuum of care, resulting in the best possible health and quality of life.

Planning Council

Works to establish binding priorities and allocations for Ryan White Part A funds including what grantees should consider when spending funds or considering additional factors that affect the treatment and care of PLWH in the New York Eligible Metropolitan Area.


The Tri-County Steering Committee, a sub-committee of the New York HIV Health and Human Services Planning Council, is responsible for setting Ryan White Part A service priorities and allocations in Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam counties of the New York.

Support Unit

The Planning Council Support Unit, part of the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Division of Disease Control, supports all Council activities and ensures that the Council and its members are able to fulfill their roles and responsibilities under the Ryan White legislation.

Get to know what services we offer inside the council and how you could take advantage of them today.

Mental Health Services

PLWH with mental illness experience poorer HIV health outcomes due to trauma and difficulties following their treatment plans. Mental health services help PLWH overcome barriers to mental health care, and can help clients stay connected to care and supportive services.

Legal Services

Legal services are available to help PLWH with benefits and other legal matters such as wills and medical directives. They help with housing discrimination and other legal concerns related to their HIV status.

Supportive Counseling Service

Supportive counseling provides individual, group, and family counseling, as well as caregiver support, pastoral care, bereavement counseling and allows counselors to help individuals with a variety of different HIV care needs.
