Background and Overview
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announces the availability of fiscal year 2008 funds for a cooperative agreement program for community based organizations (CBOs) to develop and implement HIV prevention programs in the following two categories:
- Category A: The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico
- Category B: The United States Virgin Islands
Applicants will be asked to implement evidenced based behavioral interventions that support the HIV prevention priorities outlined in the comprehensive HIV prevention plans of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Category A) and the U.S. Virgin Islands (Category B); and promote collaboration and coordination of HIV prevention efforts among CBOs, health departments, and private agencies to increase the number of high risk persons who are both tested for HIV infection and informed of their results.
Applicants will be asked to adapt CDC program models, including Diffusion of Effective Behavioral Interventions (DEBIs), Public Health Strategies (PHS), and activities supporting CDC's Advancing HIV Prevention Initiative.
This program announcement (PA) is limited to nonprofit organizations (e.g., nonprofit, CBOs, faith-based organizations experienced in working with the target populations. In addition, the organization must be located and provide services in the area for which they apply the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Based on anticipated funds available, CDC expects to award up to 8 cooperative agreements under Categories A and B. The average award will be approximately $250,000, with a minimum of $200,000 and a maximum of $300,000 (See Section II. Award Information). The funding period for Categories A and B is up to 5 years and is based on availability of funds.
