2022 Healthy Communities Stipend
In partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Partnering and Communicating Together to Act Against AIDS (PACT), LULAC invites you to apply to the 2022 Healthy Communities Act Against AIDS Stipend Opportunity in order to host an HIV/AIDS awareness event in your community.
Latinos are the second-highest minority affected by HIV and in 2016 accounted for over 24% of new diagnoses in the United States. Through this funding opportunity, 6 sites will be awarded $1,500 each and will have the opportunity to host an HIV/AIDS awareness event that will provide free HIV testing to their local community while combating the impact of HIV/AIDS in the Latino community.
