EJAF today announced its first round of grants for calendar year 2013, totaling $850,000. View a complete list and project descriptions for these latest grants:
The three new and two renewal grants support organizations working to address some of the most critical challenges of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States. The projects being supported include:
- • efforts to improve access to HIV-related medical services in Puerto Rico, an area of the country hardest hit by the AIDS epidemic;
- • programs that help link people with little or no health coverage to resources that will help them stay on their HIV/AIDS medications;
- • advocacy and education about HIV criminalization to end the use of criminal law to prosecute and imprison HIV-positive people for consensual and no-risk behavior;
- • a campaign to bring the documentary film How to Survive a Plague and associated education programs to a broader audience; and
- • the creation of the New York City AIDS Memorial and the development of associated education programs.
We are deeply grateful to all of our generous and loyal donors for supporting EJAF’s life-saving grant initiatives.
