HIV Young Leaders Fund Announces 2010 Request for Proposals

The HIV Young Leaders Fund seeks grant proposals from organizations in all countries working to address the needs of young people most affected by HIV in their communities, including young people living with HIV.

Young leaders and youth networks drive the funding priorities and governance of the HIV Young Leaders Fund. The Tides Foundation is the fiscal agent for the HIV Young Leaders Fund, and the HIV Collaborative Fund serves as an advisory body.

Only youth-led organizations or youth-led projects are eligible for funding. Youth-led is defined as the project or organization leader being 30 years of age or younger. Key activities supported by the fund include local, national, regional, or international HIV advocacy; local peer-based HIV services; and community mobilization. Applying organizations and projects must serve young people most at risk for HIV in their community and/or young people living with HIV. Groups can apply for funding even if they are not registered organizations in their home countries, but will need to identify a fiscal sponsor if selected.

There are two application tracts — one for core funding (grants of up to $30,000) and one for project funding (grants of up to $20,000).

Grant application materials are available in Arabic, English, French, Russian, and Spanish at the Tides Foundation Web site.
