This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks research to advance our understanding of community-level HIV-prevention and care interventions within geographic locations and specific populations highly impacted by HIV. In targeting communities, this FOA invites applications to address the need for efficacious interventions that simultaneously impact a large number of individuals. These interventions can target communities highly impacted by HIV based on geographic, social, or demographic criteria. Structural interventions and systemic interventions are encouraged. The goal is to lower HIV infections and HIV viral load at a community-level by changing individual behaviors via cost-effective and sustainable means. Interventions proposed in response to this initiative should target communities as defined by geographic proximity, shared goals, and/or common characteristics, which may include but are not limited to race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, social economic status, education level, behavior, and identity. This includes both populations that are vulnerable to HIV infection and individuals living with HIV. Intervention approaches should take into consideration the existing agencies or organizations in the community that are capable of adopting the efficacious community-level interventions that are developed and tested.
