When was the last time you had your organizational check-up? 

Change is nothing new for AIDS service organizations (ASOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs). They’ve evolved time and time again since the beginning of the HIV epidemic. Only now, change is coming on multiple fronts — and it’s happening fast. Reimbursements. Health care financing. Biomedical advancements. Health care delivery. The mainstreaming of HIV care. To keep up, ASOs and CBOs don’t need as much business acumen as commercial organizations — they need more. That’s where the AIDS United Sector Transformation initiative can help! 

Change can be scary but adapting to change is important in life and in business. Managing change, however, can’t happen thoughtfully without the right resources. That’s why AIDS United is here to help.


Through Sector Transformation, AIDS United will provide grant support to of up to $30,000 to HIV organizations led by and serving marginalized communities actively engaged in transformational projects.

These can include, but are not limited to:
  • expansion of services;
  • development of strategic alliances or partnerships;
  • mission expansion or rebranding;
  • transition to FQHC or FQHC look-alike status;
  • post-merger integrations;
  • responsible closures;
  • or mergers or consolidations.

This initiative is focused on tangible restructuring outcomes within a one-year time period.
