Program Manager – Special Projects of National Significance
AIDS United’s grant-making portfolio dates to the founding of the National AIDS Fund in 1987. For more than two decades, we have supported community-driven responses to the HIV epidemic around the country that reach the nation’s most disproportionately affected populations, including gay and bisexual men, communities of color, women, people living in the deep South, and people living with HIV. To date, our strategic grantmaking initiatives have directly funded more than $118 million to local communities and have leveraged more than $184 million in additional investments for programs that include, but are not limited to, syringe access, access to care, capacity-building, HIV prevention, and advocacy.
AIDS United’s policy and advocacy roots were born out of the coalition in 1984 when AIDS service organizations across the country came together to form AIDS Action Council. AIDS Action Foundation was formed as the education arm a few years later. AAC and AAF together formed AIDS Action, decades later, AIDS Action merged with the National AIDS Fund. AIDS United houses the most seasoned and respected domestic HIV policy team in Washington, D.C., and our public policy work is informed by a Public Policy Council that includes a broad array of organizations from all regions of the country engaged in helping to end HIV epidemic in the United States.
