New Grants to Help HIV-Positive Transgender Women of Color

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has announced two new grant competitions focusing on connecting HIV-positive transgender women of color with health care services, including primary care and HIV-related care, Think Progress reports. The   first grant opportunity will award each of up to eight grantees $300,000 annually for five years. The demonstration sites will develop, implement and evaluate innovative programs designed to connect these women with timely and appropriate care. These programs will also help them stay in touch with providers who can provide a range of primary and HIV-related services. The second opportunity will fund an evaluation and technical assistance center that will coordinate capacity-building activities, provide technical assistance in clinical and cultural competence around care for HIV-positive transgender women of color, and oversee the dissemination of findings from the demonstration sites. The new grants are part of a growing number of initiatives by the Department of Health and Human Services that specifically focus on transgender people.
