AIDS United’s Sector Transformation Initiative: Focusing on Biomedical Approaches to HIV!

Deadline: 5 February 2018

AIDS United is seeking applications for its Sector Transformation Initiative.

The Affordable Care Act, evolving funding streams, and new paradigms that increase focus on biomedical approaches to HIV and integration of services with broader health systems, have many HIV/AIDS service organizations facing critical questions, opportunities, and challenges. It’s a brave new world — and it can be a complicated one to navigate. That’s where the AIDS United Sector Transformation initiative can help!

Funding Information

Sector Transformation support includes cash grants to organizations as well as support for specialized technical assistance for restructuring efforts.

  • Cash Grants: A maximum of $50,000 will be awarded to support specific organizational needs (personnel and program/legal expenses) directly related to the proposed restructuring activities.
  • Technical Assistance: Sector Transformation provides specialized technical assistance for specific restructuring-related activities. AIDS United uses a network of contractors and consultants to provide technical assistance nationwide. Technical Assistance may be requested on its own or as part of a grant submission.
  • Reverse Site Visits: When an organization is going through restructuring, it can be helpful to visit an organization that is a successful model of the planned new structure. AIDS United refers to these trips as “Reverse Site Visits.” Support for Reverse Site Visits may not be requested as part of a grant submission.
