Which grant should I apply for?

For LGBT organisations wishing to apply for a Rapid Response Fund grant to help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT) or men who have sex with men (MSM) who are having difficulty accessing HIV services, please consider the questions below:

  • Are the people/person you intend to help experiencing threats, attacks, or imminent danger to their health, life or security?
  • Is it critical that activities take place within the next two weeks to address barriers that prevent them accessing HIV services?

If you answered yes to both of these questions, then apply for an Emergency Response Grant. 
If you answered no to the questions above, but can answer yes to both questions below then apply for a Challenge Response Grant:

  • Are the people/person you intend to help experiencing discrimination or threats to their health, life or security that impact their access to HIV services?
  • Is it critical that activities take place within the next few months to address barriers that prevent them accessing HIV services?
