Notice of Funding Opportunity PS19-1906: Strategic Partnerships and Planning to Support Ending the HIV Epidemic in the United States
This website is designed to:
- Support the application process for national organizations and health departments applying for Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) PS19-1906; and
- Provide a forum for the dissemination of important information to future PS19-1906 funded organizations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is committed to working with public health systems, hospitals, and healthcare providers to ensure that planners, developers, and implementers of public health initiatives possess the skills and resources needed to better address HIV in the U.S. and its territories. CDC announces the availability of fiscal year 2019 funds for a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to support CDC human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) related policies and programs. This program will support strategic partnerships, communication, peer-to-peer technical assistance (TA), and jurisdictional planning efforts to address emerging needs of targeted jurisdictions through CDC-funded state and local health departments and their ability to end the HIV epidemic in the U.S. Despite many treatment and prevention advances, reducing HIV infections and improving health outcome for people with HIV in the U.S. remains a challenge. In February 2019, the Ending the HIV Epidemic in America was announced (initiative). The initiative will leverage powerful data, tools and resources to reduce all new HIV infections by 75% during the first 5 years of the initiative and by 90% in 10 years.
This program will support strategic partnerships, communication, peer-to-peer technical assistance (TA), and jurisdictional planning efforts to address emerging needs of targeted jurisdictions through CDC-funded state and local health departments and their ability to the end the HIV epidemic in the U.S.
The purpose of this NOFO is to fund:
- A national organization to enhance the health departments’ capacity to support integrated HIV programs; ensure development and maintenance of strategic communication channels and partnerships that advance national HIV prevention goals and contribute to ending the HIV epidemic in the U.S.
- Eligible health departments to conduct a rapid planning process that engages the community, HIV planning bodies, HIV prevention and care providers, and other partners in aligning resources and activities to develop jurisdictional End the HIV Epidemic plans.
