Technical Assistance and Capacity Development Demonstration Grant Program for HIV/AIDS-Related Services in Minority Communities
FY 2005-2007 Grantees

Grant recipients will identify community-based minority-serving organizations that are well linked with minority populations affected by HIV/AIDS, and which have recognized needs and/or gaps in their capacity to provide HIV/AIDS-related prevention and care services.

The Technical Assistance and Capacity Development Demonstration Grant Program for HIV/AIDS-Related Services in Minority Communities (TACD) is administered by the Office of Minority Health (OMH), located within the Office of Public Health and Science of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The OMH was created in December 1985 with a mission to improve the health of racial and ethnic minority populations through the development of policies and programs that address disparities and gaps. Consistent with its mission, the role of OMH is to serve as the focal point within HHS for leadership, policy development and coordination, service demonstrations, information exchange, coalition and partnership building, and related efforts to address the health needs of racial and ethnic minorities.

The TACD Program was developed in 1999 as part of the Minority HIV/AIDS Initiative to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in minority communities. The purpose of the Program is to stimulate and foster the development of effective and durable service delivery capacity for HIV prevention and treatment among organizations closely linked with the minority populations impacted by HIV/AIDS. Specifically, the goals of the Program are to: (1) provide administrative and programmatic technical assistance to enable community-based minority-serving organizations to enhance their delivery of necessary services; and (2) assist those community-based minority-serving organizations, through an ongoing mentoring relationship, in the development of their capacity as fiscally viable and programmatically effective organizations thereby allowing them to successfully compete for federal and other resources. Expected project outcomes include increased number of community-based minority-serving organizations with the programmatic capacity to provide appropriate and effective HIV/AIDS services; increased potential for sustainability of those organizations as evidenced by systems change; increased number of community-based minority-serving organizations with the administrative and programmatic capacity to compete successfully for funding to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic; and increased reach of the organizations’ services within the community, as evidenced by increases in the client base, utilization rates and development of formal partnerships with other organizations.

This fact sheet describes the 17 projects funded in FY 2005 for the three-year project period September 1, 2005 through August 31, 2008. The projects, located in 10 states, carry out activities that address administrative and programmatic needs among community-based minority-serving organizations. Examples of the various activities implemented to address the purposes of the TACD Program include organizational assessments, mentoring, workshops on specific topics such as grant writing, and annual conferences to foster staff development.
