Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) - TB, HIV, STD, and Viral Hepatitis Program
05/29/19 4:00 PM Receipt
Grant to a Connecticut nonprofit, proprietary corporation, community-based organization, state agency, or municipality to develop a peer-led internet-based HIV intervention program. Applicants must demonstrate collaboration between a CBO, a project evaluator, and an academic institution. This request for proposal (RFP) will include funding to develop, implement, and evaluate a peer led PrEP Navigation intervention.
The CT DPH HIV Prevention Program is seeking proposals from Connecticut community-based agencies, private organizations, CT State agencies, academic institutions or municipalities to provide the following services: the development of a peer driven intervention that recruits current PrEP users to be sources of PrEP knowledge and positive PrEP role models for their social and sexual networks. The proposed intervention will be provided to individuals at high risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV [i.e. HIV positive individuals, men who have sex with men (MSM) by peer navigators recruited, trained, and evaluated by the applicant. The applicant will provide a detailed demonstration project work plan that describes all phases of the PrEP Navigation intervention development, implementation, and evaluation.
The CDC’s new federal funding opportunity will accelerate the nation’s progress toward a goal of no new infections through two central priorities:
- Ensure that all people living with HIV are aware of their infection and successfully linked to medical care and treatment to achieve viral suppression.
- Expand access to PrEP, condoms and other proven strategies for people at high risk of becoming infected.
These goals are to be achieved by expanding HIV testing, referring and linking HIV positive persons to medical care and other essential services, such as PrEP Services and increasing program monitoring and accountability. The DPH will utilize past performance, and the applicants experience working with key populations, and implementing peer related interventions through the screening and the review committee process. Priority will be given to applicants that can demonstrate experience working with populations disproportionately affected by HIV, such as Black and Latinx males, Black women, and MSM.
