Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund

In 2020, AIDS United relaunched our Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund (formerly the HIV Disaster Relief Fund), which was established to help meet the immediate and urgent needs of people living with and vulnerable to HIV in regions affected by urgent crises like earthquakes and hurricanes, and now the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund supports access to HIV care, housing, food and much more.

Through the Relief, Recovery and Resilience Fund, AIDS United has provided more than $300,000 in grants of up to $15,000 to help organizations address the community needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are continuing to add resources from donations from both individual donors and our philanthropic partners. (If you would like to contribute to this effort, donate now.)

As new resources come in, AIDS United will make funds available to assist in meeting the needs of organizations serving people living with and vulnerable to HIV and AIDS, and that are experiencing challenges serving their community’s needs because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Competitive organizations must have an HIV focus and utilize a social and racial justice framework. Additionally, applicants must clearly articulate the importance of the issue or challenge that they or their community (communities) is (are) experiencing, the current opportunity to address it, and why the applicant is the appropriate entity to address the stated challenge.

Please note that funds to support additional requests are on an invitation-only basis and as funding becomes available. If your organization would like to be notified when additional funds are available, please send an email to with your name, your organization’s name, your organizational budget amount and the state where you’re located.

Please note that AIDS United cannot give funds directly to individuals living with HIV or to organizations outside the U.S. Grantees must have 501 (c)3 nonprofit status as designated by the IRS or have a fiscal sponsor that does. For inquiries about general eligibility, please write
