CDC Offers Funds to Expand HIV Testing Among At-Risk Populations

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is offering funds to eligible health departments to increase HIV testing opportunities among at-risk populations, primarily African Americans, intravenous drug users and men who have sex with men (MSM). This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for fiscal year 2010 was made to bolster the agency’s three-year Expanded HIV Testing Initiative.  

FOA is only available to health departments that recorded at least 175 combined estimated AIDS diagnoses among African Americans and Hispanics in 2007.

Ultimately, the goal of this FOA is to identify those who are HIV positive and then link them to care and services. The program will also determine how to sustain resources for routine HIV testing in health care settings.

Jurisdictions eligible for funding include: Alabama, Arizona, California, Chicago, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Houston, Illinois, Los Angeles, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York City, New York State, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Puerto Rico, San Francisco, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia
