Grants to USA and Puerto Rico community-serving organizations including faith-based organizations for programs to expand access to HIV testing. Funding is intended to create new programs and expand existing programs that will provide the community with HIV self-testing options. Preference will be given to programs in priority jurisdictions and those that are minority-led.

The CDC Foundation was awarded a federal grant to work on the Enhancing Community Capacity to Support HIV Self-Testing Programs (HIVST) in partnership with CDC's Division of HIV Prevention. The goal of this RFP is to expand the reach and impact of HIV Self-Testing programs in the United States by building the capacity of community-serving organizations (CSOs) focused on populations most affected by HIV. The CDC Foundation is partnering with Community Education Group, a regional HIV prevention-focused organization to provide technical assistance, capacity-building support and discounted bulk HIV self-tests kits for CSOs funded under this project.

Scope of Work:

CSOs complement the work of state and local health departments and other agencies by having the true ability to meet clients where they are with their health needs. CSOs are uniquely positioned to implement and expand the reach and impact of HIVST programs with their accessibility and availability to people who cannot otherwise obtain HIV services. See the CDC’s guidance on HIV Self-Testing programs.

The program activities described below attempt to address the gap in HIVST for communities most affected by HIV transmission by 1) increasing knowledge of HIV status; 2) reducing the incidence of HIV among priority populations; 3) increasing engagement and access to HIV treatment and prevention support services; and 4) increasing access and use of safe spaces for priority populations.

Program Activities – There are five (5) eligible program objectives with activities outlined below. Applicants are encouraged to submit a proposal that includes all five (5) program objectives. Applicants may subcontract activities, as needed.

  • Objective 1: HIVST Program Implementation and/or Expansion
  • Objective 2: Prioritize HIVST Education and Test Kit Distribution
  • Objective 3: HIVST Program Promotion and Outreach
  • Objective 4: Expand Community Collaborations and Partnerships
  • Objective 5: Encourage Linkages to HIV Treatment, Prevention, and Other Essential Services
