This document addresses some questions about funding opportunity announcement (FOA) PS10-1057: Act Against AIDS Leadership Initiative (AAALI). The questions in this document are from potential applicants and the responses are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Please check this page frequently for updates.
The application must be submitted by 5 PM EDT on June 14, 2010. You may, however, register and begin completing your
application on www.grants.gov. Once you register you can complete and submit your
application as many times as you like prior to the closing date of the application, but your final application must be
submitted in grants.gov by 5PM EDT on June 14, 2010.
The organizations should be listed as partners in the application. However there can only be one lead organization and only
one application should be submitted on behalf of the coalition. Note that this coalition will have to be able to demonstrate
Yes. AAALI is part of the Act Against AIDS Campaign (AAAC) that is focused on the HIV epidemic in the United States.
For this reason, funding will only be provided to applicants whose activities will be conducted in the U.S.
Yes. This funding opportunity is for full and open competition so organizations that fit the criteria described in pages
25 - 27 are eligible to apply. Organizations can only apply for Part A or Part B. You cannot apply for both parts of the FOA.
For both Part A and B, we invite national organizations or organizations that have national reach to apply. Note that
organizations that apply under Part B can be a coalition. For Part B then, organizations may partner to apply as a
coalition so as to expand their national reach. If you choose to apply as a coalition, the coalition can submit only one
application for the entire coalition.
As long as the entity is not a small business or cannot be considered a 501(c)(4) organization, you may apply using the
entity’s tax ID number and Duns number. The application process is the same as outlined in the FOA. Please note that under the Special Eligibility Criteria (pages 27 and 28), it is stated that Title 2 of the United States
Code, Section 1611 states that an organization described in Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code that engages in
lobbying activities is not eligible to receive Federal funds constituting a grant, loan, or an award.
Part B allows for organizations to form coalitions to reach MSM. For Part A, it is our assumption that your organization
would have a national reach that would allow you to integrate HIV into every part of your organization.
