Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) PS10-1003: HIV Prevention Projects for Community-Based Organizations (CBOs)
The purpose of the program is to support the development and implementation of effective community-based HIV prevention programs that reflect local prevention priorities and serve persons at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV; to promote collaboration and coordination of HIV prevention efforts among CBOs, health departments, and private agencies; and to build the capacity of CDC-funded CBOs delivering selected interventions to persons at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV.
This program also includes an optional outcome monitoring project is to improve the performance of CDC-funded CBOs delivering particular behavioral interventions by monitoring changes in clients' self-reported HIV transmission risk behaviors after participating in the intervention, as well as to assess the fidelity of the implementation of the selected intervention at the CBO.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded 133 CBOs cooperative agreements in Categories A and B. The average award is $323,000. The funding period of the cooperative agreement is up to 5 years and is based on the availability of funds. The HIV Prevention Programs for this announcement are awarded in the following two categories:
Category A: HIV prevention services for members of racial/ethnic minority communities who are at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV infection.
Category B: HIV prevention services for members of groups at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV infection regardless of their race/ethnicity.
CBO Monitoring and Evaluation Project (optional): Project to provide support for behavioral outcome monitoring to CBOs implementing RESPECT or WILLOW for individuals who are HIV-infected or at high risk for HIV infection.
Awardees were funded to implement both evidence-based behavioral interventions (EBIs) and public health strategies that support the HIV prevention priorities outlined in their jurisdiction’s comprehensive HIV prevention plans. As mentioned above, applicants also had the opportunity to apply for additional funding to support outcome monitoring of selected behavioral interventions (CBO Monitoring and Evaluation Project).
This opportunity is limited to nonprofit organizations (e.g., community- and faith-based organizations, clinics) with documented experience working with the target populations and providing services in the area.
