HIV/AIDS Contest Grant Round and Leadership Cohort
EXTENDED DEADLINE: Due to technical difficulties with the online application, we are extending the deadline to 6 PM EST on November 4, 2017.
Through the HIV/AIDS Contest Grant Round and Leadership Cohort, we will award grants of up to $2,500 for innovative projects based in the South that focus on HIV/AIDS in the LGBTQ community.
Projects should center the leadership of those most impacted by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the South. Grantees will also be invited to take part in a HIV/AIDS Leadership Cohort, providing a year of intensive support and resources as they implement their projects.
Apply below as an individual or a group; 501c(3) status is NOT required to receive a grant.
This new grant round is part of CSE’s Southern Equality Fund and our new Southern LGBTQ Health Initiative, a partnership with Western NC Community Health Services.
Criteria to Apply:
These are required in order to receive funding:
- Must live and work in the South promoting equality, safety, and/or visibility of LGBTQ people.
- Southern Equality Fund grants are intended to support grassroots and new work with annual budgets of less than $50,000; however, if your group’s budget is more than $50,000, please go ahead and apply, explaining why your work is a fit in the application.
- Although groups are not required to be a 501(c)3 or have a fiscal sponsor in order to apply, we do require that all grantees adhere to 501(c)(3) requirements for funded work.
