This Web site is designed to facilitate the application process for Community-Based Organizations applying for funding under Program Announcement PS10-1003.
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. The purpose of the 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 announces the availability of fiscal year 2010 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: 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 one of the following individual- or group-level behavioral interventions for individuals who are HIV-infected or at high risk for HIV infection: CLEAR; Many Men, Many Voices; Partnership for Health; RESPECT; SiHLE; Sister to Sister; START; Street Smart; or WILLOW.
Applicants may request funding 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 will also have 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.
Based on anticipated funds available, CDC expects to award up to 150 cooperative agreements. The average award will be approximately $300,000, with a minimum of $200,000 and a maximum of $500,000 (See Section II. Award Information.) The funding period is up to five years and is based on availability of funds.
