About this funder:
Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund
AIDS United has relaunched our Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund (formerly the HIV Disaster Relief Fund), which was established to help meet the immediate and urgent needs of people living with and at risk for HIV in regions affected by urgent crises like earthquakes and hurricanes, and now the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund supports access to HIV care, housing, food and much more.
Through the Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund, AIDS United will provide grants of up to $15,000 to help organizations address the community needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Current available funds total $150,000, but we are continuing to add resources from donations from both individual donors and our philanthropic partners.
AIDS United is making funds available, through this request for applications, to assist in meeting the needs of organizations serving people living with and at risk for HIV and AIDS, and that are experiencing challenges meeting their community’s needs because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
