On the path toward ending the HIV epidemic in Cuyahoga County, the AIDS Funding Collaborative is releasing its 2024 request for applications for annual responsive grants.

Letters of Intent are due July 1, 2024; funding starts October 1, 2024, for a 12-month period. Learn more at technical assistance meetings on June 11 or June 13.

Why apply for a responsive grant from AFC?

AIDS Funding Collaborative believes in community involvement, aims to promote leadership of people living with HIV, and is committed to racial equity. As such, special consideration will be given to programs and organizations that involve people living with HIV/AIDS in the conceptualization, delivery, and/or evaluation of proposed programs. Additionally, organizations that submit a joint application outlining the collaborative use of their common resources to achieve a greater level of efficiency will be given special consideration.

How does a responsive grant differ from discretionary, targeted, and catalyst grants?

The AFC awards grants, both large and small, in a variety of different categories including annual responsive grants; small discretionary grants for sponsorships or short-term projects; grants by invitation that are targeted to urgent or unmet needs; and a category of mid-range grants called catalyst grants, designed to support innovative and intensive HIV-related efforts in specific neighborhoods and networks that face the highest rates of HIV.

The AFC is a public/private partnership designed to strengthen the community’s response to HIV/AIDS by providing coordination, leadership, advocacy, and funding in Cuyahoga County.

Throughout its 30-year history, the AFC has invested over $13 million to support HIV/AIDS-related services, prevention efforts and community initiatives in Cuyahoga County.

AFC Funding partners and strategic goals

The AFC’s funding partners are: The Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board of Cuyahoga County; The City of Cleveland; The Cleveland Foundation; Cuyahoga County; The George Gund Foundation and Mt. Sinai Health Foundation. The Center for Community Solutions is the fiscal home of the AFC.
