Implementation Grants

After a school system or agency completes a curricular training, there is an implementation grant available to them.  These grants are to help the school or agency implement the curriculum program that they were trained in.

Implementation grants are available for the following curricula:

  • Be Proud! Be Responsible!
  • Best Practices in HIV Prevention Education
  • Partners in Prevention
  • Real Talk
  • Reducing the Risk/Making Safer Choices

HIV Peer Prevention Mini-Grants

Grants are easy to apply for and use.  Schools are required to fill out a simple grant application listing what they’d do with the money, who they expect to reach and how many people, etc.  After the Department receives and approves it, an award letter is mailed to the school member applying for the grant, along with the principal and superintendent.  The letter states the school will receive the money within 4-6 weeks.  Once the school spends the money on their prevention activities, they’re required to submit a final one-page report and copies of invoices where the money was spent.  Schools are given plenty of time to decide on and complete their HIV/AIDS prevention activities.  For example, if staff attend a spring training, they have until late fall to complete the activity and submit the required paperwork.
