United States Conference of Mayors Releases HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program Guidelines
Deadline: February 27, 2006
The United States Conference of Mayors (<a href="http://www.usmayors.org/">http://www.usmayors.org/</a>), in cooperation with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for HIV, STD and TB Prevention (<a href="http://www.cdc.gov/nchstp/od/nchstp.html">http://www.cdc.gov/nchstp/od/nchstp.html</a>), has issued a Request for Proposals for its HIV/AIDS Prevention Grants Program, which is designed to strengthen local capacities to carry out effective HIV/AIDS prevention activities.
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 African American or Hispanic Women at High Risk of HIV Infection.
USCM plans to award grants totaling approximately $740,000 to local health departments, nonprofit community-based organizations, and Native American tribes/nations for implementation of HIV/AIDS prevention projects for these target populations. Approximately $180,000 will be allocated to three grants of $60,000 each for Native Americans; approximately $560,000 will be allocated to eight grants of $70,000 each for high-risk women. All proposals will be judged by an external panel of experts solely on merit; membership in USCM is not required.
In both tracks, priority will be given to groups that demonstrate strong community ties and have specific experience in serving the target group or subgroup. 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.
