Grant Description
Grants to Illinois agencies, local health departments, and nonprofit organizations for HIV education and prevention programs. Applicants are advised to complete the required registrations in advance of the deadline. Priority will be given to applicants serving underserved populations.

QOL Grants are targeted to serve at-risk populations in proportion to the distribution of recent reported HIV Disease cases in Illinois, stratified by risk, race and ethnicity as reported to IDPH HIV Surveillance. 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.

A prioritized population is defined as “under-requested” if in the last QOL application cycle, the total number of service units for a given population requested by all eligible applications combined was less than the number of service units listed in the application as available for that population group.

In the SFY 2021 QOL funding cycle, the following population groups were under-requested:

  • African American MSM, HRH, IDU, and MSM/IDU
  • Hispanic MSM, HRH, IDU, and MSM/IDU
  • White MSM, HRH, IDU, and MSM/IDU
  • Asian or Pacific Islander & Other MSM, HRH, and IDU

Successful applicants with enough organizational capacity, diversity and experience may be asked to consider inclusion of some under-requested populations for service and reduction of service units for over-requested populations to achieve the QOL legislation’s goal of serving all prioritized populations in proportions mirroring recent Illinois HIV incidence.

For further details on eligible interventions, see p. 4 of the NOFO in Supporting Documents.
