September 2001

Computer Grants Initiative to Supply Computers to 100 Qualified Community-Based Organizations (CBOs)

The National Minority AIDS Council is pleased to announce the third year of its partnership with the National Institute of Health's Office on AIDS Research (OAR; http://www.nih.gov/od/oar) to provide 100 CBOs in the U.S., its territories and possessions with computer equipment and Internet access to enhance HIV/AIDS knowledge on research, prevention and treatment programs for people living with HIV/AIDS, through the Equal Access Computer Grants Initiative.

The Equal Access Computer Grants Initiative is intended to help minority CBOs tap into the Internet's potential to enhance opportunities for learning, collaboration, technical assistance and the distribution of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment information. Unfortunately, many minority HIV/AIDS organization have been unable to develop the resources and skills to use the Internet effectively. Internet content for these organizations and their clients has been sorely lacking.

The Equal Access Computer Grants Initiative seeks to address these problems by:


Eligibility

Only NMAC member organizations with a demonstrated history of serving minority populations for not less than two years in the U.S. and its territories, with 501(c)(3) status are eligible to participate in the Computer Grants Program. However, if your organization is not a member, you can join before the application deadline in order to be eligible. (Please note: Participants who have previously been awarded grants are ineligible.)
