The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded $55 million over five years to 34 community-based organizations (CBOs) in Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) to expand HIV prevention services for young gay and bisexual men of color, transgender youth of color, and their partners. The awards expand upon a previous program to reach these populations with an increase of $10 million to fund a larger number of community organizations. The average award for each organization is approximately $300,000 per year. The new CDC awards are designed to enable CBOs with strong links to these populations to meet their specific HIV prevention needs. The HIV Prevention Programs for this announcement are awarded in the following two categories:
Category A: HIV prevention services for high risk Young Men of Color Who Have Sex with Men (YMSM of color) and their partners regardless of age, gender, and race/ethnicity.
Category B: HIV prevention services for high risk Young Transgender persons (YTG) of color and their partners regardless of age, gender, and race/ethnicity.
