The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) Center for HIV, Hepatitis, STD, and Tuberculosis Epidemiology is soliciting proposals from qualified non-profit community-based organizations to develop and implement sexual health and health equity promotional/educational/outreach activities (with a focus on currently available RIDOH funded services) that target youth and young adults, men who have sex with men (MSM), and communities of color. Current sexual health RIDOH-funded services include condom distribution programs (mailing and community-based), rapid HIV testing (at-home mailing and community-based), STD and HIV clinical screening and treatment, health promotion/education through the RIght Time App, and drug user health services (home delivered and community based). Proposals should focus on only one of the three priority groups and the reach of the program should encompass the entire state of Rhode Island, with a focus on communities with the highest rates of HIV and STDs.
Questions are due April 14, 2021 and proposals are due May 7, 2021.
