The Washington County Public Health Disease Control and Prevention program has funding available through the HIV Early Intervention Services and Outreach grant.
This funding opportunity is available to community-based organizations for programming that offers comprehensive sexual health information, reduces stigma, provides education in a culturally responsive and trauma-informed way, and engages individuals throughout their lifespan. Proposers are asked to consider issues around resistance to HIV/STI testing based on cultural values, fears and mistrust of service providers, and homophobia. The County encourages proposers to apply who currently work with impacted communities, who are expanding the scope of their work, and are focused on providing culturally responsive, and trauma-informed services that seek to reduce the stigma associated with sexual health.
The total amount of funding available is up to $170,000. The County may award one or more grants.
The deadline is Monday, September 30, 2019, at 5 p.m.
