The Syringe Access Fund provides grants to support work in the following areas:
A. Syringe Access Direct Services: Access to sterile syringes through syringe services programs (SSPs); and
B. Education/Mobilization: Policy/advocacy campaigns focused on improving public policy at local, state, and/or national levels.
Please note that organizations can apply to EITHER A or B of the funding areas above.
The primary goal of the Syringe Access Fund is to provide core support for programs that demonstrate: (a) an ability to provide high quality syringe access services to one or more identified population(s), and/or (b) an ability to conduct local, statewide, or national-level policy advocacy initiatives that demonstrate concrete objectives and activities to expand access to sterile syringes.
The Syringe Access Fund will prioritize support for programs in geographic areas in which access to sterile syringes can be dramatically improved through either greater programmatic capacity or policy improvement. The Syringe Access Fund will also prioritize support for programs that involve drug users in designing, delivering and evaluating services, as well as programs that are peer- and volunteer-run (for information on meaningful involvement, please find on the AIDS United website “Meaningful Involvement of People with HIV/AIDS (MIPA); ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’). Other compelling factors may include HIV and HCV prevalence, injection drug use prevalence, opioid use, overdose incidence, availability of local funding, and areas in which policy improvements can have local, state, and/or national impact.
Strategic partnerships are encouraged.
Challenge Grants for Governmental Organizations: The Syringe Access Fund encourages government support of syringe access. In places where local or state government can find resources for syringe access services, education or mobilization, the Syringe Access Fund may be willing to provide matching funds to advance these efforts. The matching component provides an opportunity for public-private innovation. For example, this may mean that Syringe Access Fund resources would be used to purchase syringes while public dollars support other aspects of syringe access programming.
