The Council's primary responsibility is to establish priorities for the allocation of Ryan White Treatment Extension Act of 2009 funds in Minnesota. Although Council members do not select which agencies receive funding, they are instrumental in determining the amount of funding that will be put into general service areas such as primary health care and case management.

  • The Council decides which services are needed by people living with HIV, develops a plan to provide these services, and decides how much money should be used for the services. Decisions are based on an evaluation of the needs of people living with HIV. The Council does not select which agencies receive funds.

  • The Council is a diverse, community-based, volunteer organization. Council membership is designed to mirror the demographics of the HIV positive community in Minnesota. At least 33% of its members must be living with HIV.

  • Each Council member is responsible for preparing for and attending Council meetings throughout their two-year term. These meetings occur on the second Tuesday of each month and are usually three hours in length.

  • Council members are also responsible for participating on at least one Council committee. Committees have various time commitments, but all meet at least monthly for two to three hours.  Click the link for a list of committee descriptions.
