Secretary’s Minority AIDS Initiative Funding for Care and Prevention in the United States (CAPUS) Demonstration Project
Grant Amount: Approximate Current Fiscal Year Funding: $14,184,912; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $44,184,912.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 funds through the HHS Secretary’s Minority AIDS Initiative for a demonstration project for health departments in the United States to support implementation of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to reduce HIV-related morbidity, mortality, and related health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities in the United States. Grantees will focus on developing and implementing a demonstration project to address the following goals: (1) increasing the proportion of racial and ethnic minorities with HIV who have diagnosed infection by expanding and improving HIV testing capacity, and (2) optimizing linkage to, retention in, and re-engagement with care and prevention services for newly diagnosed and previously diagnosed racial and ethnic minorities with HIV. These two goals should be achieved by addressing social, economic, clinical, and structural factors influencing HIV health outcomes.
The funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is limited to the 18 health departments or their Bona Fide Agents located in the United States, 12 of which are located in the South. Local health departments, community-based organizations (CBOs), for-profit entities, public nonprofit, private nonprofit, faith-based, and tribal organizations and colleges and universities are not eligible to apply for funding under this FOA. The 18 health departments or their Bona Fide Agents are divided into three tiers based upon HIV prevalence (unadjusted) (2009 CDC surveillance data). A list of eligible jurisdictions is located under Section III: Eligibility Information. Tier 1: Applicants eligible for Tier 1 are limited to six eligible health departments with an HIV prevalence of at least 30,000 cases. Tier 2: Applicants eligible for Tier 2 are limited to six eligible health departments with an HIV prevalence of at least 16,000 cases but less than 30,000 cases. Tier 3: Applicants eligible for Tier 3 are limited to six eligible health departments with an HIV prevalence of at least 8,000 cases but less than 16,000 cases.
This FOA addresses the four overarching goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy: (1) Reducing New HIV Infections, (2) Increasing Access to Care and Improving Health Outcomes for People Living with HIV, (3) Reducing HIV-Related Disparities and Health Inequities, (4) Achieving a More Coordinated National Response to the HIV Epidemic.
