Grants of up to $75,000 to Illinois non-profits, agencies, and others for HIV education and prevention programs. Conference calls will be held December 15 and 30. Grant administration training sessions will be held February 14 and 18. Priority will be given to applicants serving previously underserved populations.
High Impact Prevention is essential to achieving the HIV prevention goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which was announced in 2010. Agencies must implement prevention interventions and strategies that are scalable, cost-effective and have demonstrated potential to reduce new HIV infections in the target populations, yielding a major impact on the HIV epidemic.
• Outreach is considered a recruitment strategy for interventions and not a stand-alone intervention. It will not be funded as an individual intervention.
• Community discovery is not a stand-alone intervention. It will not be funded as an individual intervention.
• Condom distribution is an expected feature of all interventions and is not a stand-alone intervention. It will not be funded as an individual intervention.
To encourage a diverse set of applications collectively requesting to serve all the prioritized populations, additional points will be awarded to applicant organizations proposing to serve multiple prioritized populations and for requesting to serve populations under-requested in the last funding cycle. In the SFY2015 QOL funding cycle, the following population groups were under-requested:
