Program to provide services to African-American and rural persons with HIV/AIDS

The Foundation's Local Initiative Funding Partners Program is a matching grants program designed to establish partnerships between the Foundation and local grantmakers in support of innovative, community-based projects that improve health and health care for underserved and vulnerable populations.This is a project to join the work of two collaborating organizations -- the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network and the Regional HIV/AIDS Consortium. Its goals are to enhance the role of faith communities in HIV prevention education, improve the system of services for people living with HIV/AIDS, and increase the capacity of local organizations to meet these public health challenges. The African-American community will be a special focus, as well as people with special needs in rural counties. Funding partners include The Duke Endowment, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, the Foundation for the Carolinas, and the National AIDS Fund.
