With this Call for Applications, CHRP primarily seeks to center the voices of persons who are highly affected by HIV in the planning, development, implementation, and dissemination of innovative research to improve HIV-related health outcomes in their local communities. To do this, CHRP will fund multiple collaborative research teams who will work with community members to identify HIV-related syndemic outcomes that are important to that community, jointly create a research agenda including evidence-based interventions to improve those outcomes, implement research projects to serve that agenda, and disseminate research results with and for that community. Specifically, this research initiative aims to:
- Establish new or strengthen existing multi-sector research partnerships which center specific communities that are highly affected by HIV;
- Support the shared development and implementation of research agendas toward ending HIV and addressing HIV-related syndemic outcomes that concern the centered community;
- Form a community of practice to increase the likelihood of success as the teams implement the research projects from their agendas;
- Hold the collaboratives accountable for making the results of the research accessible and actionable to the community at its center once the research is complete.
Award Amount and Details
Each award will support up to four years of related activities. Total budget for all four years is limited to $1,400,000 in direct costs ($350,000 per year for four years), which can be unevenly distributed across the four-year project period.
