    2020 Calls for Applications

    Details on the two calls for applications are detailed below. Letters of intent are due May 20, 2020.

    Implementation Science for Ending the HIV Epidemic

    The California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP) aims to award up to $3 million to support HIV implementation science. Implementation science, in this context, refers to the study of strategies to incorporate evidence-based interventions or practices into existing systems of care or community programming. Applications proposing novel HIV prevention and treatment studies or ones operating outside of existing health systems or community programing will not be considered. The goal of these awards is to support research that has the potential for the implementation lessons to be scalable for sustained impact on the HIV epidemic in California. Projects can range from 1 year to 3 years in duration and can have budgets up to $200,000 per year in direct costs. The maximum direct cost budget over the life of the grant cannot exceed $600,000.

    HIV Policy Research Center Awards

    The California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP) aims to fund two statewide HIV Policy Research Centers. These multi-disciplinary, academic teams should work in partnership with providers, consumers, advocates, and policymakers to conduct HIV policy research. The goal of the Centers is to support timely and impactful policy analyses that are responsive to policy maker and other stakeholder needs in California and that strengthen local, state and national capacity to enact HIV-relevant policies informed by objective and rigorous research. The Centers will focus on rapid response research completed within a 6-month timeframe on policy issues that arise during the active grant period and through stakeholder engagement processes. CHRP anticipates providing up to $4 million in total funding for these Centers. Each applicant can request up to $500,000 total (direct and indirect cost) per year for a four-year period.
