We’re pleased to announce the opportunity for grant support through the seventh cycle of the People Organizing Positively initiative. With continued funding support from Gilead Sciences Inc., we anticipate making eight to 12 grant awards that will range from $35,000-$45,000 per award for a 12-month project period.
Funding will prioritize projects developed within organizations serving and advocating for people living with HIV. Applicants must demonstrate organizational dedication to the leadership development of people living with HIV predicated on the principles of Meaningful Involvement of People Living with HIV. These projects should have specific, measurable impact on developing leaders living with HIV and on the applicant organization.
