  • Funding InformationOrganizations applying to Positive Action Grants may request funding in the following three categories:
  • General operating support (no maximum) for core support and mission-driven community-based work.Project support (maximum $250,000 per year) for organizations implementing innovative projects within ViiV Healthcare’s three focus areas, which should be tailored for your key population focus (if you have one):
    • Linkage and Engagement: Services are those that provide people living with and vulnerable to HIV with referrals and resources, health literacy and self-advocacy skills, and direct support for their access and sustained engagement in HIV prevention, care, treatment and supportive services. ViiV Healthcare is particularly interested in efforts that:
      • Invest in navigation efforts that support clients through their lived experiences by sharing resources, navigation insights learned from personal experience and/or training, and emotional support that promotes hope and trust.Create strong prevention infrastructure for key populations, fueling new ways to reach and engage people in HIV prevention.Support for the development and/or implementation of holistic professional/workforce development opportunities for peer navigators and community health workers.Support for programs that provide resources for the day-to-day needs of peer navigators and community health workers.Support for peer navigators and community health workers to implement a variety of innovative efforts, inclusive of the social determinants of health, to reach and engage people more broadly and holistically.
      Networks for People Living with HIV or Vulnerable to HIV and for Organizations:
      • Networks for People Living with HIV or Vulnerable to HIV are formal or informal groups that meet regularly (more than once a year), in-person, virtually, or both. The goals are to: create or strengthen relationships; increase self-advocacy; share information; develop skills; reduce isolation; increase reach and use of resources to support engagement in prevention, treatment and care.
        • Support the development and strengthening of safer/brave spaces that validate identities, and build and provide opportunities to connect with holistic, culturally resonant health and supportive care.Support for activities and events that elevate the important role that families and allies play in dismantling stigma, homophobia and transphobia that keep people from actualizing their health and wellness goals.
        Networks for Organizations are formal or informal groups that include representatives of organizations. Groups meet regularly (more than once a year), inperson, virtually, or both, to improve service delivery systems, resources or approaches that support access and sustained engagement in prevention, care, treatment and supportive services for people living with or vulnerable to HIV.
        • Support training opportunities for safer space facilitators in traumainformed care and other restorative justice and healing-based work.Support for leadership development and fellowship programs that offer tangible and focused skills development, career mentoring and networking opportunitiesSupport, strengthen and connect community-led organizations and coalitions to enhance the coordinated local and national response to HIVImprove the capacity of organizations to provide culturally competent and affirming care that meets the unique needs of key populations
      Advocacy: Activities are campaigns, leadership strengthening, insights gathering and dissemination, narrative change and culture project efforts that effect policy change, reduce stigma, and improve access and strengthen systems of prevention and care for people living with and vulnerable to HIV. ViiV Healthcare is particularly interested in efforts that:
      • Expand harm reduction services and advocacy to successfully engage people who use drugs in care, and support their families and communities.Support the decriminalization of HIV at the local and national level.Increase access to quality and culturally responsive sexual health education.Activate arts and culture as a tool for community engagement, connection, and reducing stigma.Increase access to and awareness of the mental health needs of people living with or vulnerable to HIV.
    AMP Grant (maximum $350,000 per year): Knowing small or local projects often can’t access traditional funding sources, and that innovation is often found at the grassroots level, AMP Grant Leads act as an incubator to cohorts of innovative individuals, projects or small organizations leading outreach and engagement efforts that reach people living with or vulnerable to HIV. As part of an expanded effort to place resources directly in the hands of community, AMP Grant Leads provide funds, capacity building, technical assistance, mentorship and more. All AMP Grant requests should focus on the following areas:
    • Enhance advocacy, by providing capacity building and leadership development tools for people living with or vulnerable to HIV.Develop networks with and for micro-grantees to reduce isolation, foster shared learning and enhance cooperative efforts to combat HIV.Activate linkage and engagement projects that break down barriers and help more people connect to care.Use arts and culture to engage communities, raise awareness, reduce stigma and build or deepen empathy around People Living with HIV.
    Organizations can apply for multiple grants by submitting one application per project.
