Curbing HIV/AIDS Transmission among High Risk Minority Youth and Adolescents (CHAT)
FY 2009 Grantees

The Office of Minority Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced the award of nearly $2.5 million to 10 organizations, to support efforts to help improve the capability of community-based organizations for curbing HIV/AIDS Transmission Among High Risk Minority Youth and Adolescents (CHAT).

"These grant awards will help us continue our efforts to support and nurture the great work of community-based organizations in their day-to-day battle against HIV/AIDS," said Dr. Garth Graham, deputy assistant secretary for minority health. "We must all work together to close the health gap among minority populations, especially those who might not fit into general population treatment categories."

The CHAT Program is intended to ascertain and monitor the effectiveness of collaborative community-based interventions, implemented at the grassroots level, on reducing health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations, and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the collaborative partnership approach in supporting ongoing HIV/AIDS prevention/education and testing initiatives aimed at educational settings; juvenile detention facilities; and alternative living arrangements ordered by the courts.

To find out more about these grants, please go to the Office of Minority Health web page at: or call the OMH Resource Center at 1-800-444-6472.
