2013 New Media Microfund

Grant Amount: Organizations selected for this funding may receive up to $9,000.

In order to use new media effectively, organizations need to develop communications plans to guide their efforts. To support that critical planning process—and the goals of the DGS—John Snow, Inc. (JSI) is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity.

The purpose of these microfunds is to support new media/communications planning, and to help the HIV/AIDS service community to move toward the DGS goal of making information available “anywhere, any place, and any time.”

The activities the applicant proposes should help the organization and community produce a plan
to use new media as a means of expanding his/her work. This may involve implementing a
new plan or augmenting an existing plan. Examples of HIV new media activities that can
be funded include (but are not limited to):

Expanding his/her current new media plans or strategies,
Planning and coordinating meetings to develop a new media/communications strategy for his/her organization or community,
Providing technical support to implement a new media project or campaign,
New media training and support,
Evaluating a current new media project.

Examples of activities that will not be funded include: direct clinical treatment and purchasing of equipment, such as computers, conference travel, or mobile phones.
