Mini-Grants Available: The Power Grants - Raising HIV/AIDS Awareness Your Way
Contra Costa Health Services AIDS Program is pleased to announce the availability of grants to conduct interactive education events reaching women and men who have risks for acquiring HIV. We are interested in funding events where groups explore why individuals or communities continue to put themselves at risk for HIV infection.
Local groups and institutions, including churches, neighborhood groups/associations, non-profit organizations, and salons/barber shops are encouraged to apply. Engaging and interactive group events corresponding to HIV/AIDS Observances are encouraged, such as World AIDS Day, National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Latino HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, and Contra Costa County May AIDS Awareness Month.
Grants are available for up to $1,000. Grant money can reimburse for materials, speakers and other related needs to conduct events in Contra Costa County reaching local residents. All events must be completed before June 2008. The AIDS Program can provide technical assistance, such as event planning and media advocacy.
Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2007. Funds are limited, so early submission of applications is encouraged. Please go to www.cchealth.org to obtain an application or contact Pamela Anderson-Moore by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 925-313-6775 for any questions.
Award recipients must schedule an orientation with the Contra Costa County AIDS Program to finalize details of the grant prior to final approval of application.
