AIDS United, with funding from Gilead Sciences, is pleased to announce an opportunity for funding support through the Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund: Supporting the HIV Community Impacted by Hurricane Fiona. Through the Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund, AIDS United will provide grants to assist organizations serving people living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS in Puerto Rico that are experiencing challenges meeting their community’s needs due to the impacts of Hurricane Fiona.

The overarching vision of the RRR Fund is that HIV service organizations impacted by disasters are able to sustain their programming for and services to people living with HIV (PLWH), provide direct relief to PLWH, continue their organizational recovery efforts, and ramp up to full operation, and effectively plan for future catastrophes. AIDS United’s rapid-response funding seeks to mitigate the negative impacts of disasters on PLWH, providing grassroots organizations with funding to respond to challenges so that PLWH do not experience a disruption in their physical or mental health care.

Through this opportunity, AIDS United will provide grants between $15,000 and $35,000 to help organizations address community needs related to Hurricane Fiona. Current available funds total $420,000. We anticipate making 12-28 grants that may support activities such as the following:

Service provision


Organizational support


Funding can be used for general operating support or project-specific needs.
