CFAR/ARC Ending the HIV Epidemic Supplement Awards

In September 2022, NIH announced 66 awards to institutions participating in the NIH-funded Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) and the NIMH AIDS Research Centers (ARC) programs. These new awards will support research in 33 EHE counties, Washington, D.C., San Juan Municipio, and 7 EHE states to strengthen research-community collaborations, and enhance the implementation science knowledge base needed for Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE). Included in the awards are: four new and five continuing EHE implementation science consultation hubs and the Implementation Science Coordination Initiative (ISCI). Also listed are awards disbursed in Fiscal Years 2019 - 2021. All projects involve partnerships between CFAR/ARC investigators and local health officials and community groups in EHE priority areas.
