The Foundation Center reports a new grant program offered by Kaiser Permanente aimed at eliminating economic disparities and the disproportionate racial and ethnic impact of HIV. Four two-year awards ($125,000 per year for $250,000 total) will be awarded to community-based projects focused on reducing HIV infection by utilizing and increasing access to HIV care and by identifying recently infected adolescents and adults. Nonprofit organizations including community and minority health groups, organizations focused on community and/or national partnerships towards minority health and education, among others, are invited to apply. Per the announcement, “applicants must have the ability to work with multiple ethnic and racial populations and have the capacity to collaborate with other organizations that represent targeted minority populations.”
The deadline for applications is July 2, 2012. The full PDF can be viewed here.
