Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations in eligible southern states for HIV prevention, movement building and advocacy, and care and support services. A letter of inquiry is required prior to submission of a full application. Applicants must be based in and provide services in one of the following states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

The Fund supports and funds organizations that focus on serving trans-identified and gender non-conforming persons; Black and Latinx gay, bisexual, and queer men; other people of color; people who experience oppressive policing and mass incarceration; and reproductive justice for women of color and gay and bisexual men. For more traditional HIV-focused organizations, it is important to show how their work intersects with racial and gender justice. The collaborative of funding partners believes that the lives of people living with, or at risk of HIV cannot be siloed into one issue area.

The Southern HIV Impact Fund offers grant support under two categories: general operating support and project-specific support. AIDS United encourages applicants to review the two categories below very carefully before determining the grant category under which they will apply. For more information about these categories, see:

All funded projects and invited organizations must be aligned with the core values of Social Justice and Intersectionality and Meaningful Involvement of People living with HIV. For more information about these core values, see:

The Southern HIV Impact Fund will prioritize applications that are innovative, intersectional in their approach, meet a need that is unmet or insufficiently met, and are rooted in a thorough understanding of the culture and needs of the community. It is important to provide a clear understanding of the population you propose to work with and demonstrate how the staff for your project and organization is representative of the community(ies) you serve. People who are representative of the epidemic in your locality should be involved in the design and implementation of the project. The application must fall under one or both of the following categories: HIV prevention and service provision and HIV-focused political action and mobilization. For more information about these focus areas, see:
