The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently awarded funds to 36 community-based organizations (CBOs) in 16 states under CDC’s Comprehensive High-Impact HIV Prevention Programs for Young Men of Color Who have Sex with Men and Young Transgender Persons of Color (PS22-2203). The CBO funding recipients will develop and implement high-impact HIV prevention programs for young men of color who have sex with men, young transgender persons of color, and their partners regardless of age, gender, and race/ethnicity.
PS22-2203 is a $72 million, 5-year program, with first-year funding of about $14.4 million.
This funding opportunity supports key goals of the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative: achieving health equity, reducing disparities, and addressing social determinants of health. The funding also supports prevention services for three of the priority populations designated in the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (2022-2025): gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men, in particular Black, Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native men; transgender women; and youth.
The full list of funded CBOs can be found here.
