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.

This Web site is designed to facilitate the application process for Community-Based Organizations applying for funding under Program Funding Opportunity Announcement PS11-1113.
The purpose of the program is to support the development and implementation of effective community-based HIV Prevention Programs that serve Young Men of Color Who Have Sex with Men (YMSM of color) and Young Transgender (YTG) persons of color and their partners at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV; to increase the number of YMSM of color and YTG persons of color who are aware of their HIV status and linked to care, treatment, and prevention services; to build the capacity of CDC-funded CBOs delivering selected structural interventions, behavioral interventions, outreach or Enhanced HIV Testing with Personalized Cognitive Counseling to YMSM of color and/or YTG persons of color and their partners at high risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV; to ensure provision of HIV prevention and care services; and to promote collaboration and coordination of HIV prevention efforts among CBOs, health departments, and private agencies.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announces the availability of fiscal year 2011 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 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.
NOTE: Throughout this funding opportunity announcement, “young” and “youth” is specifically defined as individuals between the ages of 13 and 29 years.
Applicants should request funding to implement a Comprehensive HIV Prevention Program that supports the HIV prevention priorities outlined in their jurisdiction’s comprehensive HIV prevention plans.
