The Gilead COMPASS (Commitment to Partnership in Addressing HIV/AIDS in Southern States) Initiative has begun accepting applications for their ‘Transformative Grant,’ awarded to organizations in the Southern States who are working to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

As a Coordinating Center for the Gilead COMPASS Initiative, Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health identifies and provides funding to local organizations that aim to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic throughout the region. 

Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health is one of three Coordinating Centers for the COMPASS Initiative, along with Southern AIDS Coalition and University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. The three Coordinating Centers will host informational webinars to provide an overview of the request for proposals (RFP) process. 

The Transformative Grant is part of a $100 million effort over 10 years to fight stigma, increase access to health services, and increase local leadership for those living with HIV.

Applicants must be located in and provide services in one of the nine “Deep South” states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas) and must be a non-profit.

Completed proposals are due via the COMPASS Initiative® website by 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time, Monday, Sept. 23, 2019.
