Grants for HIV AIDS Prevention Programs

From The Foundation Center...

United States Conference of Mayors Accepting Proposals for HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program

Deadline: February 25, 2008

The United States Conference of Mayors ( http://usmayors.org/), in cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention ( http://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp ), has issued a Request for Proposals for the HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program to strengthen local capacities to carry out effective HIV/AIDS prevention activities.

Proposals will be accepted for the following funding priority: Implementation of HIV/AIDS Prevention Services Targeting Women of Color at High Risk of HIV Infection. USCM plans to award grants totaling approximately $420,000 to local health departments, nonprofit community-based 501(c)(3) organizations, and Native American tribes for the implementation of HIV/AIDS prevention projects targeting high-risk women of color.

Applicants must propose to conduct an individual- or community-level intervention that has been or can be shown to increase the adoption of safer behaviors and/or reduce the risk of HIV transmission. All proposals will be judged by an external panel of experts solely on merit; membership in USCM is not required. No proposal will be selected for funding unless it provides clear evidence of the participation of the target population in developing the proposal and a clear role for the target population in conducting the proposed program. Grants are restricted to projects whose intent is to provide direct prevention services to the target community; research projects will not be funded. Funding will be divided into six grants of approximately $70,000 each.
