CLEVELAND, OH – Since 1994, the AIDS Funding Collaborative (AFC) has been the leading public/private partnership focused on the HIV effort in Cuyahoga County. In one of its largest grant categories, the AFC awarded over $250,000 in grants in October. Six organizations will utilize these funds to support HIV/AIDS-related services and prevention programming.
AFC responsive grants were awarded to agencies that submitted proposals in response to the AFC’s request for applications, following a letter of intent process. The priorities for this round of grants were: HIV care and support services; HIV prevention, including harm reduction; capacity building; and community-led and neighborhood-based HIV programming focused on zip codes and networks in greatest need.
