NEW two funding opportunities!
Clinical Provider Engagement Grants – Up to $50,000 per project
The Getting to Zero Program is releasing TWO funding opportunities to support community-based clinical provider STI and HIV prevention activities focused on reaching populations who are disproportionately impacted.
Project #1 - DoxyPEP Provider Engagement Grant
Funding is available to non-profit organizations that currently provide the following services: Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) Navigation and Clinical Services in Santa Clara County, Sexually Transmitted Infection Testing, Treatment and Care.
While bacterial STIs have been increasing for nearly a decade, we know that some population groups, including gay and bisexual men, continue to experience a higher burden of infection. Recent research suggests that prescribing doxycycline as post-exposure prophylaxis (DoxyPEP) can prevent these infections. The purpose of this project is to expand patient DoxyPEP access in Santa Clara County through implementation of clinical protocols and provider trainings. These activities will build the clinical infrastructure needed to prescribe DoxyPEP within their community-based organization clinical practices.
Organizations can be awarded project funding of up to $50,000. Applications are due Wednesday, March 29, 2023.
Project #2 – Injectable PrEP Provider Engagement Grant
Funding is available to non-profit organizations that currently provide the following services: HIV PrEP Navigation and Clinical Services in Santa Clara County.
HIV PrEP is one of many tools that a person can use to reduce their risk for HIV infection. Long-acting cabotegravir, also known as CAB-LA or by its brand name Apretude, is an injectable PrEP option that is administered via an intramuscular injection once every two months. The purpose of this project is to expand patient access for Apretude in Santa Clara County through implementation of clinical protocols and provider trainings. These activities will build the clinical infrastructure needed to prescribe and administer Apretude within their community-based organization clinical practices.
Organizations can be awarded funding of up to $50,000. Applications are due Wednesday, March 29, 2023.
