Applying for the Rapid Response Fund

The Rapid Response Fund is available through two types of grants: Emergency Response Grants and Challenge Response Grants.

Which grant should I apply for?

In order to determine which grant is best suited for your situation, please read the description of the grants on the previous page, and consider the questions below.

  • Are the people you intend to help with this grant 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 access to HIV services for LGBT people and MSM?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, then we recommend that you apply for an Emergency Response Grant. These grants will only be issued to support interventions that respond to immediate and urgent threats that impact HIV services provided to MSM or the LGBT community, and where action must happen very quickly to be effective.

If you answered no to the above questions, but still need to address an urgent situation that prevents MSM and LGBT people from accessing HIV services, and which needs a rapid intervention in order to have an impact, you can apply for a Challenge Response Grant.

Make an application

Once you have established that you are eligible, and have selected the type of grant most appropriate for your need, there are two ways to submit an application:

  1. Complete an application form online using the buttons below. This is the quickest way to make an application. (If you prefer to submit in Spanish, Portuguese or French, please use the google translate tab which is at the top right side of this webpage, and the website text (including the application form) will be converted into your chosen language.)
