      HRSA SPNS Grant Good Day All,

      The following is a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) request for proposals (RFP) for Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS Grant).

      und Number: 2390
      Fund Title:
       Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS)
      Activity of Code: H97/HAB
      Fund Category:
      The purpose of this program is to fund Demonstration Models of Outreach, Care, and Prevention Engaging Young HIV Seropositive Men of Color. In the United States, the predominant mode of transmission of HIV remains men who have sex with men (MSM). Over half of new AIDS cases reported among men who have sex with men occur in young men of color. This funding initiative will support four to five projects targeting young (ages 13-24), HIV seropositive MSM of color. The funding start date and duration of this initiative will be the same for both the Evaluation Center and the demonstration projects. The purpose of this initiative is to support the development and evaluation of innovative service models designed to reach young, HIV seropositive MSM of color not engaged in clinical care and link them to appropriate clinical, supportive, and preventive services. The specific objectives of this initiative are to (1) conduct outreach; (2) conduct HIV counseling and testing; (3) link HIV-infected persons with primary care services; and (4) prevent transmission of HIV infection from HIV positive men to others, among young MSM of color. The Evaluation Center will evaluate model effectiveness in reaching and engaging HIV seropositive young MSM in clinical, supportive, and preventive services. The Center will also support the replication of effective models. In awarding these grants, preference will be given to applicants whose primary mission includes serving the target population for this initiative.
