Enhancing Capacity for Community-Serving Organizations to Support HIV Self-Testing Programs RFP

The CDC Foundation was awarded a federal grant to work on the Enhancing Community Capacity to Support HIV Self-Testing Programs (HIVST) in partnership with CDC's Division of HIV Prevention. The goal of this RFP is to expand the reach and impact of HIV Self-Testing programs in the United States by building the capacity of community-serving organizations (CSOs) focused on populations most affected by HIV. The CDC Foundation will fund CSOs located throughout the United States. Eligible CSOs are organizations that wish to implement a new HIVST program or expand an existing HIVST program and that have a history of serving vulnerable populations affected by HIV. Entities may include faith-based organizations, community health clinics/Federally Qualified Health Centers, immigrant/migrant support or advocacy organizations, community organizing/mobilization organizations, community coalitions/networking/partnership organizations, social service organizations, AIDS service organizations and syringe service programs. The CDC Foundation is partnering with Community Education Group, a regional HIV prevention-focused organization to provide technical assistance, capacity-building support and discounted bulk HIV self-tests kits for CSOs funded under this project.
