The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 93.067.
B. Eligible Applicant
Applications may only be submitted by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), through a Bona Fide agent, if necessary.
A Bona Fide Agent is an agency/organization identified by the applicant as eligible to submit an application under the UNAIDS eligibility in lieu of an application submitted directly by UNAIDS. This is done specifically in recognition that WHO is the bona fide agent for HIV/AIDS as it relates to the receipt of external funds for program implementation. In applying as a bona fide agent of UNAIDS, WHO must provide a letter from UNAIDS as documentation of its status. Place this documentation behind the first page of your application form.
Approximately $2,000,000 is available in FY 2005 to fund this award. It is expected that the award will begin on or before August 31, 2005, and will be made for a 12-month budget period within a project period of up to four years. Funding estimates may change.
