End Hep C SF recognizes the needs of our community partners to have small, community-focused events to celebrate and support program participants. End Hep C SF is creating a “flex fund” for local End Hep C SF partner agencies in the event that supplemental funding is needed to create or support these opportunities.
These funds are to be:
- Available for active End Hep C SF partner agencies (defined as having agency representation at at least one End Hep C SF meeting in the prior 6 months) with a non-profit status;
- Available once per calendar year for each agency;
- $2,000 maximum for each application;
- Utilized for activities that are aligned with End Hep C SF’s priority populations and values;
- Utilized as a last resort (i.e. not possible to cover with existing program funding).
Our priority populations include those who are most affected by the hepatitis C (HCV) epidemic: marginalized populations, specifically people who inject drugs; people who are homeless or marginally housed; people of color (with an emphasis on African Americans as the most disproportionately impacted racial group); and people living with HIV. To learn more about our values, please read our “About Us” page on the End Hep C SF website.
Please read all instructions carefully and include all information required. Incomplete applications may not be reviewed. The burden is on the applicant to demonstrate qualifications and need for aforementioned funds. Be advised that End Hep C SF has the right to reject any and all proposals/applications.
- Use single-spaced line spacing, in Arial or Times New Roman font no less than 11 points, and 1″ margins.
- Submit one electronic version of your application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, as a single PDF document.
