Additional Information on Eligibility:
Eligible organizations that can apply for this funding opportunity are listed below:
Nonprofits with 501(c)(3) IRS Status (Other than Institutions of Higher Education)
Faith-based or Community-based Organizations Indian/Native American Tribally Designated Organizations
Health departments, non-profit organizations without 501(c) (3) IRS status, for profit organizations, and colleges/universities are not eligible to apply for this funding because its primary purpose is to target minority communities through CBOs that can enhance efforts to prevent the acquisition or transmission of HIV infections in racial and ethnic minority communities. State and local governments are not eligible because they are already funded to implement these activities (among others) through another funding opportunity announcement. Furthermore, this program seeks to complement and augment health department activities by utilizing the expertise of outside entities to reach populations that health departments have traditionally had difficulty reaching.
Competition for this FOA is limited to community-based organizations (CBOs), public nonprofit, private nonprofit, faith-based organizations, tribal organizations, and hospitals with 501(c) (3) IRS status that are located in and provide services in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands because of their credibility and capacity to reach persons living with HIV and at high risk for acquiring HIV infection. Nonprofit CBOs have proven their ability to access hard to reach populations that have traditionally suffered exclusion from mainstream interventions and other agencies.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to implement comprehensive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention programs to reduce morbidity, mortality, and related health disparities.

The aforementioned will be achieved by enhancing community-based organizationsí capacities to increase HIV testing, link HIV positive persons to medical care, increase referral to partner service, provide prevention services for HIV positive individuals and high risk individuals with unknown/negative serostatus, and increase program monitoring and accountability. Standard performance measures for HIV prevention programs that are consistent with the focus of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy on improving performance and accountability are included in this FOA.The organizationís Comprehensive and Innovative Client-Centered HIV Prevention Program will consist of the following program components: (1) program promotion (2) client recruitment; (3) addressing health disparities; (4) enhanced HIV testing; (5) strategies to support linkage, re-engagement, and retention in care; and (6) a combination of structural, behavioral, and/or biomedical interventions that supports maximum reach and optimal outcomes.
