Summary

The Centers for Disease Control - NCHHSTP is offering a grant opportunity titled "High-Impact HIV Prevention and Surveillance Programs for Health Departments". This cooperative agreement aims to implement a comprehensive HIV prevention and surveillance program to prevent new HIV infections and improve the health of people with HIV. The program focuses on community engagement, health equity, syndemic and whole-person approaches to HIV prevention. The grant allows flexibility for health departments to identify and implement activities based on need and resources to reach specific goals. The priorities of the grant include increasing knowledge of HIV status, reducing HIV transmission, preventing new infections, improving linkage to care and viral suppression, and maintaining elimination of perinatal transmission. The grant also aims to strengthen surveillance and program data for public health action and improve services for populations experiencing rapid transmission. Optional activities supporting surveillance, prevention, demonstration projects, and data modernization initiatives may be requested based on funding availability. The grant encourages the integration of core prevention, surveillance, and Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) funding resources to maximize impact and improve HIV data collection and use for public health action. Special District Governments are eligible to apply, and fiduciary entities may request funding on behalf of health departments with appropriate agreements. The total program funding is estimated to be $2,900,000,000, with an expected number of 60 awards. The application deadline is April 29, 2024, at 11:59 pm ET. For more information, contact Erica K.

Description

The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) is to implement a comprehensive HIV prevention and surveillance program to prevent new HIV infections and improve the health of peoples with HIV. The NOFO aligns with CDC’s Division of HIV Prevention (DHP) strategic focus areas to bolster community engagement, health equity, syndemic and whole-person approaches to HIV prevention. Applicants will have the opportunity to build their proposed HIV prevention and surveillance program by identifying and implementing activities within the jurisdiction, based on need and resources, to reach the stated goal(s) for each strategy. This NOFO allows for flexibility while ensuring that funding resources are reaching the geographic areas with the highest HIV burden and greatest need. The NOFO priorities are to increase knowledge of HIV status, reduce HIV transmission, prevent new HIV infections, improve linkage to care and viral suppression and maintain elimination of perinatal transmission, with populations. The NOFO aims to attain accurate, complete, and timely surveillance and program data for public health action and strengthen cluster and outbreak response efforts to improve services for people in networks experiencing rapid transmission. Optional activities supporting surveillance, prevention, demonstration project and data modernization initiatives may be requested per availability of funding. The integration of core prevention, surveillance, and Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE) funding resources allows each jurisdiction to align resources to better match the geographic burden of HIV infections within their jurisdictions, to maximize the impact of federal HIV prevention funding and to improve HIV data collection and use for public health action.
