AIDS United, with funding from Gilead Sciences, Inc., is pleased to announce the opportunity for grant support through the People Organizing Positively initiative (formerly Positive Organizing Project)!
People living with HIV have a critical role to play in combating stigma, serving as role models for disclosure and engagement in care, working to decriminalize HIV, and leading advocacy activities by—and for—people living with HIV, towards policy and programmatic solutions. The goals of the People Organizing Positively initiative (POP) are to:
- Support innovative projects that fully embody the principles of Meaningful Involvement of People Living with HIV (MIPA);
- Increase leadership capacity of People Living with HIV (PLHIV);
- Support grassroots activities that involve the leadership of PLHIV; and
- Strengthen the organizational practices that embody and operationalize MIPA values.
AIDS United expects to award funds through this grantmaking initiative by October 1, 2018. Applicants are eligible to apply for grants ranging from $40,000 to $60,000. This funding will cover a project implementation period of 8 months.
Completed Letters of Intent (LOIs) are due 12:00pm ET, July 27, 2018. Applicants will be notified by August 6, 2018 if they are invited to submit a full proposal with full submission instructions.
