Organizations Funded Under CDC's New Awards for 12-1201
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has begun awarding a total of nearly $20 million (Categories C only) to state and local health departments for HIV prevention. The awards are part of CDC's new high-impact approach for HIV prevention, and will align resources with the epidemic. Funds were awarded to health departments in all 50 states, eight cities with heavy HIV burden, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and the six Pacific Island jurisdictions.
Category C funds are provided to health departments to develop Demonstration Projects to Implement and Evaluate Innovative, High-Impact HIV Prevention Interventions and Strategies. These funds were awarded to jurisdictions already implementing and evaluating existing or promising HIV prevention practices that support achievement of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) goals.
Legend of Categories
Category A: 2012 Funding Amounts
All health departments received funding under Category A to conduct essential HIV prevention activities. For the first time, health departments are required to direct at least 75 percent of CDC funds in this category to four key areas: HIV testing; comprehensive prevention services for HIV-positive individuals and their partners; condom distribution; and efforts to align policies to optimize HIV prevention, care and treatment – such as efforts to eliminate external barriers to routine opt-out testing.
Category B: 2012 Funding Amounts
Under Category B, 24 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and eight cities with large numbers of African-Americans and Latinos living with HIV received additional funding to expand access to HIV testing services, primarily in healthcare settings, for these populations and others heavily affected by HIV.
Category C: 2012 Funding Amounts
CDC will award an additional $20 million to health departments by March 2012 as part of this funding cycle to implement innovative HIV prevention demonstration projects. This will bring the total annual amount disbursed (under all three categories) to nearly $359 million.
Please note: Award information includes 2012 funding amounts only. Funding changes for allocating core HIV prevention resources to better match the geographic burden of the U.S. HIV epidemic will be implemented gradually over a five-year period and will be completed by 2016.
