Nov. 26, 2002 – The deadline is Monday for organizations to apply for funding from the National Minority AIDS Council's Equal Access Computer Grants Initiative.
The Health Department's Office of Minority Health urges community organizations that provide HIV/AIDS services and programs to apply for the grants, which fund comprehensive computer and Internet equipment and services to help the receiving organizations in their missions.
NMAC will provide 100 community-based organizations in the United States, its territories and possessions, with computer equipment and Internet access to enhance HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment programs.
Applications for 2002-2003 grants must be submitted by Dec. 2. Requirements are outlined on the Health Department's HIV Clearinghouse Web site, or call 715-0963 for an application.
Each participating group will receive a complete desktop computer with Internet connectivity for use by clients and staff, $100 for additional software or upgrades (such as graphics or virus scan protection), 24/7 telephone support for a year for all hardware and software, $300 for dedicated telephone lines, Internet service paid for one year, and a $500 grant for training staff and clients.
