The Rapid Response Fund, funded by a partnership between the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF), the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and UNAIDS will support civil society organisations that are led by, or work closely with MSM and LGBT people and communities, to implement rapid responses to situations or events that threaten their access to HIV services. Grants of up to $20,000 are available.

Two types of grant are available to MSM and LGBT-led civil society organisations, or organisations that have a proven track record of working with MSM and LGBT people and communities.

  • Emergency Response Grants to support activities that respond to immediate and urgent threats to the LGBT community, and where action must happen very quickly to be effective, and
  • Challenge Response Grants for longer term projects aimed at influencing legal, policy or other developments deemed hostile to LGBT communities and that could affect the ability to access HIV services for LGBT and MSM.
