National AIDS Fund and Johnson & Johnson Invite Applications for Generations: Strengthening Women and Families Affected by HIV/AIDS
Deadline: November 2, 2009

The National AIDS Fund and Johnson & Johnson have announced the availability of funds through the Generations: Strengthening Women and Families Affected by HIV/AIDS program.

This third grant round (GEN III) will award six to eight grants to community-based organizations to create or adapt evidence-based HIV/AIDS prevention interventions that reduce the spread of HIV among at-risk women and girls. GEN III funds will be targeted to geographic regions with high HIV/AIDS incidence and prevalence rates in women based on state or local epidemiology as well as in areas with emerging epidemics. Priority areas include urban epicenters and other highly impacted regions, including, but not limited to, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Puerto Rico, California, Michigan, Illinois, Washington, D.C., and the Deep South (Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina).

Generations is a unique capacity-building model that the National AIDS Fund has developed through years of grantmaking experience and lessons learned over two prior cohorts of GEN grantees. In addition to cash grants, agencies receive support through a number of components, including intensive technical assistance, program evaluation, and community building.

The program will consider two types of proposals: 1) Proposals that seek to adapt previously tested, evidence-based HIV prevention interventions; and 2) Proposals that seek to implement innovative or emerging HIV prevention interventions that are grounded in established theories of behavior change or based on scientific evidence and can be evaluated and replicated in other communities.

The complete RFP and application materials are available at the National AIDS Fund Web site.
