Grants of up to $50,000 to USA and territories nonprofit organizations to improve and coordinate services for populations that use injectable drugs. A letter of inquiry must be submitted prior to applying. Priority consideration is given to organizations that serve or are led by a majority of BIPOC individuals. Funding is intended to support programs that demonstrate: (a) an ability to provide high-quality syringe services to one or more identified communities, or (b) an ability to conduct local, statewide, or national-level community education and mobilization initiatives that demonstrate concrete objectives and activities to expand access to sterile syringes.
The Syringe Access Fund is a collaborative grantmaking initiative that seeks to reduce the health, psychosocial, and socioeconomic disparities experienced by people who use drugs (PWUD). The Syringe Access Fund invests in evidence-based and community-driven approaches to prevent the transmission of both HIV and viral hepatitis, reduce injection-related injuries, increase overdose prevention and reversal efforts, and connect people who use drugs to comprehensive prevention, treatment, and support services.
The Syringe Access Fund offers grant support under two categories: 1) syringe access direct services (access to sterile syringes through syringe services programs) and 2) education/mobilization (advocacy campaigns focused on improving public policy at local, state, and/or national levels).
Organizations are eligible to apply under syringe access direct services or education/mobilization categories. Organizations engaged in racial justice activities for people of color who use drugs are strongly encouraged to apply through either category.
The Syringe Access Fund prioritizes identifying and supporting organizations across intersecting movements to enhance and coordinate services for people who use drugs. The Syringe Access Fund supports and funds organizations that are led by and serving networks of people who use drugs, including in the design, delivery, and evaluation of services (for information on meaningful involvement, please find on the AIDS United website “Meaningful Involvement of People Who Use Drugs”). Round 12 of the Syringe Access Fund will prioritize organizations that are led by and serve a majority of Black, Indigenous, or other People of Color (BIPOC) clientele. The Syringe Access Fund will also prioritize support for programs in geographic areas in which local or state support for syringe services programs is low or nonexistent. Other compelling factors may include the prevalence of HIV, viral hepatitis, and other blood-borne pathogens; injection drug use prevalence; overdose incidence; and areas in which policy improvement can have local, state, and/or national impact.
