The Elton John Aids Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent from organizations working with people in the Americas (defined as the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, or Central or South America) who are most affected by HIV.
Grants will be awarded to organizations working to improve the health of people living with HIV or at risk or otherwise affected by HIV; uphold the rights of people living with and affected by HIV; address the social and economic needs of people living with and affected by HIV; and/or strengthen the skills and strategies of organizations and activists working to address HIV.
Priority will be given to organizations that are led by and based in the communities being served; advocate for improved government health policies and funding; are piloting or scaling innovative programs to promote health and rights; can show a history of activism, creativity, and urgency in working to address and curtail the HIV epidemic; and are grounded in evidence about where and among whom HIV infections are happening, as well as evidence about the most effective ways to help people avoid infection or, if they're already HIV-positive, to live healthy lives.
Upon review, selected organizations will be invited to submit a full proposal.
