CDC awards Atlanta organizations $15M in HIV prevention funding
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced July 1 that it will award roughly $15 million in funding over a five-year period to nine different Atlanta-area community based organizations to go towards HIV prevention efforts.
The funds will be distributed to the following organizations:
AID Atlanta (as the lead in a partnership with SisterLove Inc. and National AIDS and Education Services for Minorities Inc. (NAESM)
Empowerment Resource Center (as the lead in a partnership with Tangu Counseling and Treatment Services)
Positive Impact Health Centers (as the lead in a partnership with SisterLove Inc.)
Recovery Consultants of Atlanta (as an individual organization)
St. Joseph’s Mercy Care Services (as an individual organization)
The CDC tells Georgia Voice it is still working to finalize the budgets, but that it anticipates the average annual award amount going to the lead organization for each partnership (i.e. AID Atlanta, Empowerment Resource Center and Positive Impact Health Centers) will be $735,000, and the average annual amount for individual organizations (i.e. Recovery Consultants of Atlanta and St. Joseph’s Mercy Care Services) will be $350,000. The funds are part of a $216 million pot the CDC doled out to organizations across the country for HIV prevention efforts.
