The Island Health STOP HIV/AIDS Program is excited to announce a call for proposals for our Community Grants Program. We will be awarding grants of up to $10,000 each to communities or organizations who are interested in planning and delivering activities addressing HIV prevention, testing and engagement into care and treatment.
Special focus will be given to specific priority populations who experience a higher burden of disease or who may face additional barriers to accessing or engaging with HIV services. These include: Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Metis), women, youth, and gay, bisexual, transgender, Two-Spirit, and queer men.
Interested communities and organizations are asked to submit a completed application form (attached in Word for download) by 2:00 PM Pacific Time on January 28th, 2020 to Cheryl Luptak at this email: [email protected].
Information on how to apply can be found in the application guide. Communities or organizations awarded grants will have twelve months to complete their activities.
Proposals are due to the Island Health STOP HIV/AIDS Program by 2:00 PM Pacific time on Thursday January 28, 2021.
