The purpose of this program is to provide substance misuse and HIV prevention services to racial/ethnic minority males at risk for HIV/AIDS. The program will place an emphasis on males who have sex with other males (MSM), including transgender individuals, as well as those who identify as LGBTQ+ who are not in stable housing and reside in communities with high incidence rates of HIV. Outreach will be directed to the population of focus to assist them in receiving HIV and hepatitis testing and support services. The program will use a navigation approach (Community Health Workers, Neighborhood Navigators, and/or Peer Support Specialists) to expedite services for these populations. Organizations will have the opportunity to deliver comprehensive services (psychosocial support, medical care, housing, employment, family, education, and prescription drug assistance services) that will reduce morbidity and mortality for this high-risk population. The program will provide evidence-based substance misuse and HIV and hepatitis programming in hard to serve communities to reduce infections and increase protective factors using SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework.


Eligible applicants are domestic public and private non-profit entities.
