Funding Opportunity Description Authority: This program is authorized under Sections 301(a) and 317(k)(2) of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. Sections 241 and 247b(k)(2). Purpose: The purpose of this announcement is to provide financial assistance to non-governmental HIV prevention organizations to provide capacity building assistance (CBA), including training and technical assistance (TA), to adapt, tailor and implement science-based, behavioral HIV prevention interventions specifically targeting high-risk racial/ ethnic minority subpopulations as demonstrated by high-prevalence epidemiological evidence and other concrete quantitative and qualitative data. The minority subpopulations are migrant workers, transgender individuals, and youth in non-school settings, including lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. The term ‘‘capacity building assistance’’ or ‘‘CBA’’ means the provision of information, TA, training, and technology transfer for individuals and organizations to improve the delivery and effectiveness of HIV prevention services. CBA does not include the delivery of direct client HIV prevention services and interventions. CBA provided must be consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Advancing HIV Prevention Initiative (AHP), Replicating Effective Programs (REP), Diffusion of Effective Behavioral Interventions (DEBI), the Compendium of Effective Behavioral Interventions, and other CDC-supported strategies for specific high-risk racial/ethnic minority subpopulations. As effective interventions and adaptation and tailoring guidance are developed, future funding cycles will integrate the new science. For migrant workers, the interventions and public health strategies should be consistent with CDC-supported strategies for specific high-risk racial/ethnic minority subpopulations. Examples include the community health outreach worker (CHOW) model (also referred to as Promotores/as, lay health advisors, community health advisor networks or peer educators), Real AIDS Prevention Project (RAPP), other interventions from REP and DEBI which are appropriate for migrant worker populations. For youth in non-school settings, a number of evidence-based, scientifically tested behavioral interventions have been identified specifically for high-risk youth, including Street Smart (for E:\FR\FM\12APN1.SGM 12APN1
