AIDS United: Positive Organizing ProjectDeadline: August 14, 2017
AIDS United’s mission is to end the AIDS epidemic within the United States. The goal of the Positive Organizing Project is to increase grassroots mobilization and engagement among people living with HIV within service delivery systems to:
- Directly impact stigma
- Improve the policy and community environment for inclusive and effective HIV programs
- Indirectly improve outcomes along the continuum of care
AIDS United will support projects via two tracks, both of which are built on meaningful involvement of people living with HIV (MIPA):
- Building a MIPA-driven Organization: projects focused on concrete activities to strengthen the organizational practices and that operationalize MIPA values at the organizational level
- MIPA-driven Grassroots Projects: projects focused on specific grassroots activities that involve the leadership of people living with HIV
Amount: Awards will range from $20,000-$40,000.
Eligibility: Regional, community and faith-based organizations, including but not limited to AIDS service organizations, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and/or established networks of people living with HIV are invited to apply as long as they meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Applicants must be non-profit, tax-exempt organizations, with IRS 501(c)3 status. Organizations that do not hold 501(c)3 status must have an already established relationship with a fiscal sponsor, holding such status, in order to apply.
- Only organizations located in the United States, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands may apply.
- Organizations should be viable with or without the grant. These funds are not intended to provide general support, help start new organizations, or serve as a replacement for discontinued funding.
