The Health Resources and Services Administration’s HIV/AIDS Bureau released funding to support a new initiative entitled “Using Innovative Intervention Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes among People with HIV (2iS).” The Fenway Institute, in partnership with AIDS United, will serve as the Coordinating Center for Technical Assistance for this initiative.
Join us for a webinar on Dec. 9 at 3 p.m. EST to learn about our new funding opportunity.
The goals of the 2iS initiative are to:
- Pilot test innovative intervention strategies at up to 20 Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded recipient organizations.
- Provide technical assistance to support implementation at the sites.
- Develop accessible dissemination products to promote the replication and scale-up of successful intervention strategies in the RWHAP and other HIV service organizations nationally.
Maximum annual awards will be $190,000 over three years: three months for a formative (or program start-up) phase and up to 33 months for the client enrollment, implementation, and closeout phases. Award amounts may vary based on type of intervention but will not exceed the maximum. Ongoing funding is based on successful achievement of stated goals and subject to future funds appropriated by Congress and awarded from HRSA to the CCTA.
Please register for the webinar here. A recording of the webinar will be available to watch on Dec. 10 on the AIDS United website.
