Applications Invited for U.S. Conference of Mayors HIV Prevention Grants
Deadline: May 19, 2003

The United States Conference of Mayors (, in cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention (, seeks proposals for its HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program.

The goal of the program is to strengthen local capacity for HIV/AIDS prevention activities through the funding of projects involving community-based organizations, local health departments, and others. Proposals will be accepted
for two tracks: 1) implementation of HIV/AIDS prevention services targeting Native Americans; and 2) implementation of HIV/AIDS prevention services targeting gay/bisexual men of color. USCM plans to award grants totaling approximately $450,000 to local health departments, nonprofit community-based organizations, and Native American tribes/nations for implementation of projects targeting these two populations. Approximately $180,000 will be allocated to three grants of approximately $60,000 each for Native Americans, while roughly $270,000 will be allocated to four grants of $67,000 to $68,000 each for gay/bisexual men of color.

Eligible applicants include federally recognized Indian tribes, local health departments, community-based organizations, and existing agencies/consortia that have formed collaborative efforts between multiple groups or agencies. In both tracks, priority will be given to organizations demonstrating strong community ties and having specific experience in serving the target group or sub-group. No proposal will be selected for funding unless it provides clear evidence of the participation of the target population in developing the proposal and a clear role for the target population in conducting the proposed program. Membership in USCM is not required.
