AIDS United Funding

AIDS United’s mission is to end the AIDS epidemic in the United States. We seek to fulfill our mission through strategic grantmaking, capacity building, policy/advocacy, technical assistance and formative research.

AIDS United’s grantmaking portfolio dates back to the founding of the National AIDS Fund in 1988. For more than two decades, we have supported community-driven responses to the HIV epidemic around the country that reach the nation’s most disproportionately affected populations, including gay and bisexual men, communities of color, women, people living in the deep South and people living with HIV/AIDS. To date, our strategic grantmaking initiatives have directly funded more than $104 million to local communities, and have leveraged more than $117 million in additional investments for programs that include, but are not limited to, syringe access, access to care, capacity-building, HIV prevention and advocacy.

HIV Disaster Relief Fund
https://www.aidsunited.org/Programs-0024-Grantmaking/HIV-Disaster-Relief-Fund.aspx
AIDS United's HIV Disaster Relief Fund helps meet the immediate and urgent needs of people living with and at risk for HIV in regions affected by disasters like Hurricanes Florence and Michael. The intent of the funding is to ensure HIV-related agencies impacted by these storms can provide care and support services to the HIV community in their areas. The Fund builds off the success of the HIV Hurricane Relief Effort, which was established in 2017 in response to hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and MarĂ­a.
The main priorities for funding are to support the following activities:
  • Organizational recovery – These grants support rebuilding and reconstruction of organizations serving the HIV community in the areas affected by hurricanes Florence and Michael.
  • Client recovery – These grants fund the provision of basic needs and support services for people living with HIV and those most affected by HIV in the areas affected by hurricanes Florence and Michael.

Eligibility
  • Requests for funding will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis from agencies serving people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS who reside in or have been displaced from the areas affected by hurricanes Florence and Michael.
  • Agencies must have 501(c)(3) status, or have a qualified fiscal sponsor.
  • Applicants (or their fiscal sponsor) must have the capacity to receive award funds electronically or via FedEx.

Use of Funds
  • The maximum amount for awards is $5,000. Special consideration for larger funding requests may be given based on need.
  • Applicants must be able to spend the grant funds within three months or indicate how long is needed to expend grant funds.
  • Grant funds may be used for the purchase of medication, as approved on a case-by-case basis.
  • Grant funds may not be used for replacement of lost revenue.


Syringe Access Fund Off Cycle Grants
https://www.aidsunited.org/Syringe-Access-Fund/SAF-RFP.aspx
AIDS United, in partnership with Elton John AIDS Foundation, H. van Ameringen Foundation, Levi Strauss Foundation, and Open Society Foundations, is pleased to announce the opportunity for off-cycle support through the Syringe Access Fund.

Organizations in the SAF Round Ten Grant Cycle (whether funded or not) are eligible to apply if they are applying for a different project. Organizations that did not apply in the Round Ten Grant Cycle are eligible to apply.

The SAF off-cycle grants support start-up syringe services programs and emerging policy opportunities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 10 HIV diagnoses can be attributed to injection drug use. Currently, 175 people in the United States die every day from a drug overdose and 95 of those deaths can be attributed to synthetic or natural opioids. Widespread increases in opioid use and lack of access to evidence-based treatment and public health services have contributed to injection-related HIV and hepatitis C outbreaks.

Since the early 1980s, Syringe Services Programs (SSPs) have been an important public health intervention to stop the spread of blood borne diseases. SSPs represent one of the most successful evidence-based approaches for reducing the spread of HIV and hepatitis C. They also provide a doorway for people from historically underserved communities to enter larger systems of health, drug use cessation programs, and social services that may otherwise feel overwhelming and discriminatory toward people who use drugs.
