CDC Announces $2.2M in Grants for HIV/AIDS Programs
The CDC announced Monday plans to provide about $2.2 million to support a technical assistance and leadership program for National Partnerships for HIV, part of the "Healthy People 2010" campaign focusing on HIV prevention, educational and community-based programs and STDs. Designed to develop local, regional, state and national leadership, the program provides technical assistance and service delivery to promote skills development for community-based organizations, state health departments and other HIV prevention groups. To receive funding, groups must provide proof of tax-exempt status and fall under one of the following categories:
- Tax-exempt, not-for-profit national business or labor-related, youth-related or migrant worker-related organization;
- Academic institution working with such an organization;
- Federally recognized Indian tribal government or a non-federally recognized tribe or organization that qualifies under federal and state law.
