AIDS United, in partnership with the M·A·C AIDS Fund, is addressing the intractable barriers that cause one in two people living with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. to fall out of care. The Retention in Care initiative, administered by AIDS United, is focused on increasing retention in effective HIV healthcare by people living with HIV/AIDS, particularly those living in poverty and who are high risk for dropping out of care or becoming sub-optimally engaged in care. Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), approximately five organizations in communities across the U.S. will be selected to receive grants ranging from $200,000 to $250,000. The focus of this RFP is on interventions that will move people toward consistent engagement in healthcare and provide the support needed to maintain this level of engagement. Support will be provided for a range of approaches that either need resources to get off the ground or existing programs that can be brought to a more effective scale. (Replacement funding for services that have experienced funding shortfalls will not be provided.) The application deadline is November 2, 2012.
