The Boston Part A EMA Planning Council is a volunteer, federally required planning body that works to organize, prioritize, and allocate Ryan White Part A HIV funding in the Boston Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA). Planning Council members work with staff at the Boston Public Health Commission to assess needs and determine how to meet them across ten counties in eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. 


Join us for Boston's virtual Pride celebration! Saturday, June 13th from 12 pm - 3 pm the RW Planning Council will host a virtual booth for the community. Check out all the vendors here: Virtual Pride Festival


Applications for the 2020-2022 session are now available on our Prospective Members page. The deadline has been extended to June 15, 2020. For questions, email!


The Planning Council is seeking virtual feedback from people living with HIV. We have suspended focus groups at this time. Please help us bring this virtual survey to the communities and voices we should hear. 

Our survey is available in four languages. Scan the code with the camera on your smart phone, or click your preferred language below to follow the link to Survey Monkey.
