Resource and Technical Assistance Center for HIV Prevention and Care for Black Men who Have Sex with Men (Black MSM) Cooperative Agreement

Grant Amount: Approximately $1,500,000 is expected to be available annually to fund one awardee.

This announcement solicits applications for a Resource and Technical Assistance Center for HIV Prevention and Care for Black Men who have Sex with Men (Black MSM) Cooperative Agreement. The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to: (1) inventory existing evidence-based interventions and strategies and; (2) identify and disseminate best practices and effective models of care for Black Men who have Sex with Men (Black MSM) including young Black MSM ages 13 to 24. One cooperative agreement will be awarded under this funding opportunity announcement for the purpose of compiling, distributing, and replicating effective models for HIV clinical care and treatment for adult (ages 24 and up) and young (ages 13- 24) Black Men who have Sex with Men (Black MSM). The successful applicant organization will implement a program that works across the HIV care continuum and that yields replicable best practices and models. Knowledge transfer will occur through the creation of training manuals, curricula, webinars and other electronic media that facilitate widespread replication and implementation with an emphasis on areas where the epidemiological and surveillance data support the need for innovative service delivery models to improve the HIV continuity of care along the treatment cascade for Black MSM.
The geographic range of the proposal is nationwide and will focus on the development of a resource inventory and dissemination of best practices that can be replicated and implemented by current health services providers. The resulting inventory may subsequently be used to inform a potential Special Projects of National Significance Initiative (SPNS).
The main activities for this project are:
1. Compile a comprehensive resource inventory of culturally and developmentally appropriate and successful evidence based strategies to deliver HIV screening, testing, linkage and retention into care leading to improved health outcomes including viral suppression. The resource inventory may include culturally appropriate behavioral health components, post-incarceration discharge planning strategies, and other proven service delivery models designed to increase the number of Black MSM diagnosed with HIV who are linked and retained in care.
2. Design a Technical Assistance (TA) workbook/toolkit containing effective evidence-based best practice interventions that can be replicated and implemented for BMSMs.
3. Design a web based technical assistance clearinghouse linked to the HIV/AIDS Bureau TARGET website to manage the resource inventory containing TA resources, models of care, curricula, toolkits and webinars.
