The Community Connector Project is an initiative developed by the Arkansas Department of Health’s HIV Prevention Program to address the gaps in preventative HIV services and outreach for Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM) in Arkansas.
The goal is to provide support services that would advance HIV testing while identifying linkage-to-care gaps and resources. This innovative approach gives individual contractors the ability to access HIV prevention funding.
Applicants can apply in the following categories: HIV Testing, Linkage-to-Care, Prevention with Positives, HIV Prevention Education and Awareness, and Community Mobilization Projects (i.e., House Communities, Faith Based Communities, MSM related Social Fraternities/Sororities, Gay/Straight Alliances [GSA]).
Priority populations are MSM (men who have sex with men), Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender (LGBT) individuals. Other terms that may be inclusive of the above-mentioned populations will be considered.
