October 21, 2019 – The ACT NOW: END AIDS (ANEA) coalition is seeking proposals for a new small grants program that aims to significantly increase local and state community leadership as part of the new federal Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE): A Plan for America initiative. Selected community-based coalitions/organizations may receive up to $50,000 to support activities that will lead toward sustainable local and state-level community leadership in the new federally funded initiative. Applications are due by 5pm EST on December 6, 2019.
To obtain an application, download and submit the “letter of interest” form by November 6, 2019.
ANEA held two webinars the week of October 28th, 2019 to walk potential applicants through the RFP and review basics about “ending the epidemic” initiatives.

ANEA is pleased to launch this request for proposals thanks to grant funding provided to Treatment Action Group (TAG) by ViiV Healthcare. This support will make up to $200,000 in subgrants available over the course of one year to support the meaningful engagement of affected communities in their state and/or local EHE planning processes. ViiV will provide initial funds for the initiative; ANEA and TAG will independently make all decisions on program design, peer review, and grant awards and continue to work to expand the support available for this process from additional funders. ANEA maintains a policy of a strict firewall between funding received and the stances we take or positions for which we advocate.
