2008 AIDS Program Grants
AIDS PROGRAM GRANTS
Grants Paid During 2008
Including Payments for Grants Approved in Prior Years
AIDS Alliance for Children Youth and Family $5,000
To transform the National Consumer Leadership Corps Training Program into one that can be replicated by local AIDS organizations around the nation. Currently the program trains 45-55 women and youth in Washington, DC who then return to their communities around the country to provide HIV prevention, education and treatment information through local workshops and other outreach to women and youth. This grant will adapt the model so local organizations can use it to provide such training to women and youth in their communities. This will exponentially grow the number of trained individuals reaching out to these high-risk and underserved populations. In year one, the Alliance will adapt its model including developing a replication guide and modifying the curriculum. The replication will be piloted in DC. Learning from that experience, the Alliance will partner with two locations, one rural and the other urban.

Common Impact $15,000
New York, NY
To begin the national replication of Common Impact’s highly leveraged model of capacity building for AIDS, Mental Health, and other non-profit organizations. In particular, Common Impact addresses the information technology (IT), marketing, and human resources needs of such organizations by first helping them identify these needs and then recruiting a custom selected team of corporate volunteers to help them, usually over the course of six months, implement the plan to meet them. Highly successful in Boston, Common Impact will grow nationally to meet the need for services across the country.
