Eligibility for Category 1 (PrEP Support Demonstration Projects Targeting MSM and Transgender Persons at Substantial Risk of Acquiring HIV) is limited to health departments whose jurisdiction includes one or more of the thirty two (32) MSAs/MDs in which there are greater than 3,000 MSM living with diagnosed HIV by year-end 2010 (2011 MSA report, table 6b, published Oct 2013).
For the purposes of this FOA, definitions for the following terms apply:
Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA): MSA are geographic entities defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for use by Federal statistical agencies in collecting, tabulating and publishing Federal statistics. Furthermore, the underlying concept of a MSA is that of a core area containing a large population nucleus, together with adjacent communities having a high degree of economic and social integration with that core. MSA are composed of entire counties or county equivalents. Every MSA has at least one urbanized area with a population of 50,000 or more.
Metropolitan Division: A metropolitan division (MD) is used to refer to a county or group of counties within a Metropolitan Statistical Area that has a population core of at least 2.5 million. (http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/assets/bulletins/b10-02.pdf )

Eligibility for Category 2 (Data to Care Demonstration Projects That Use Surveillance Data Sources to Identify MSM and Transgender Persons Not in HIV Care) is limited to health departments that are eligible to apply for Category 1 and have complete reporting of all CD4 cell count and HIV viral load results.
Complete laboratory reporting of CD4 and HIV viral load test results is defined as follows:

The jurisdiction’s laws/regulations require the reporting of all CD4 and viral load results to the state/city health department
A minimum of 95% of HIV-related test results from laboratories that perform HIV-related testing for each area are being reported to the state/city health department
The jurisdiction is reporting at least 95% of all CD4 and viral load test results to CDC as of January 2014 (as outlined in the 2012 Monitoring Report, published in November 2014).
