AIDS United is seeking applications for a program entitled “HIV Hurricane Relief Effort” to assist in meeting the immediate, urgent, and ongoing needs of HIV organizations serving people living with and at risk for HIV/AIDS in these regions. The intent of the funding is to ensure HIV-related agencies impacted by these storms are able to provide care and support services to the HIV community in their areas.

The effort was started through AIDS United’s rapid response structure, in partnership with NMAC, and established through the Southern HIV Impact Fund, a collaborative effort coordinated by Funders Concerned About AIDS, and established with generous support from Gilead Sciences, Ford Foundation, Elton John AIDS Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, and ViiV Healthcare. Funders supporting the HIV Hurricane Relief Effort also include the H. van Ameringen Fund, the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, Howard Brown Health Center, and individual donors.
