The  mission  of  the  Elton  John  AIDS  Foundation  (EJAF)  is  to  end  the  AIDS  epidemic  by  ensuring  everyone  has  the  information  and  means  to  prevent  infection  and  all  people  living  with  HIV  have  access  to  high-quality  medical  care  and  treatment.  At  EJAF,  we  believe  AIDS  can  be  beaten.    We  act  on  that  belief  by  raising  funds  for  evidence-based  programs  and  policies,  and  also  by  speaking  out  with  honesty  and  compassion  about  the  realities  of  people’s  lives.      EJAF  is  pleased  to  announce  expanded  grant  making  through  a  new  initiative:    Addressing  the  Needs  of  Transgender  People  and  Black  Gay,  Bisexual,  SGL  Men.    Over  the  course  of  the  next  three  years,  2019-2021,  EJAF  anticipates  awarding  approximately  $11  million  ($3.7  annually)  in  grants  through  this  new  initiative.First-time  applicants  should  apply  for  grants  of  between  $20,000  and  $100,000  per  year.  Organizations  may  apply  for  two  or  three  years  of  funding,  with  detailed  budgets  for  all  years,  with  an  understanding  and  expectation  that  budgets  can  be  adjusted  in  the  second  or  third  year  to  reflect  evolving  programmatic  needs.  First-time  applicants  and  current  grantees  eligible  for  this  initiative,  should  complete  an  online  letter  of  inquiry  (LOI)  form  by  5  PM  Eastern  Standard  Time  on  June  30,  2018.    EJAF  will  contact  all  applicants  during  the  first  week  of  August  with  information  about  whether  a  full  proposal  will  be  invited  and  any  follow  up.  (Due  to  the  high  volume  of  requests,  we  kindly  ask  for  no  phone  calls  regarding  your  request.)  Grants  will  be  awarded  in  October  and  December  2018. 


The  goals  of  the  new  EJAF  initiative  “Addressing  the  Needs  of  Transgender  People  and  Black  Gay,  Bisexual,  SGL  Men”  are:    -Improved  HIV-related  health  and  quality  of  life  of  Black  men  who  are  gay  or  bisexual,  and    -Improved  HIV-related  health  and  quality  of  life  of  transgender  people,    

To  reach  the  stated  goals,  effective  programs  may  also  seek  to  address  many  other  correlated  health,  social,  and  structural  issues  such  as:
