Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible Organizations: Eligible organizations that can apply for this funding opportunity are listed below: Nonprofits with 501(c)(3) IRS Status (Other than Institutions of Higher Education) Faith-based or Community-based Organizations Indian/Native American Tribally Designated Organizations Health departments, non-profit organizations without 501(c) (3) IRS status, for profit organizations, and colleges/universities are not eligible to apply for this funding because its primary purpose is to target minority communities through CBOs that can enhance efforts to prevent the acquisition or transmission of HIV infections in racial and ethnic minority communities. State and local governments are not eligible because they are already funded to implement these activities (among others) through another funding opportunity announcement. Furthermore, this program seeks to complement and augment health department activities by utilizing the expertise of outside entities to reach populations that health departments have traditionally had difficulty reaching. Competition for this FOA is limited to community-based organizations (CBOs), public nonprofit, private nonprofit, faith-based organizations, tribal organizations, and hospitals with 501(c) (3) IRS status that are located in and provide services in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands because of their credibility and capacity to reach persons living with HIV and at high risk for acquiring HIV infection. Nonprofit CBOs have proven their ability to access hard to reach populations that have traditionally suffered exclusion from mainstream interventions and other agencies.
