Summary and Purpose
The project goal is to strengthen HIV/AIDS programs, and services responding to HIV/AIDS that target the American Indians/Alaska Native community at large, and those that specifically address the American Indian/Alaska Native LGBT and Two-Spirit community. This solicitation invites organizations and Tribes to continue or start programs focused on HIV/AIDS education, prevention, anti-stigma or testing.
The four objectives of the grant are to: (1) enhance or support HIV/AIDS education, awareness, anti-stigma and testing in the community, (2) provide funding for HIV/AIDS services, (3) support and encourage new HIV/AIDS Tribal programs, HIV screening or other HIV services and (4) expand the HIV/AIDS infrastructure and network for all American Indians/Alaska Natives through collaborative and transparent Tribal, Federal and community partnerships.
