Grants for Innovative HIV Prevention and Services
We are now accepting grant proposals for programs and projects on the cutting edge of HIV/AIDS prevention and services in New York City. Our Amida Care Fund seeks to support prevention and intervention strategies that engage members of the LGBTQ community who are most at risk for HIV infection, or who are HIV-positive but not virally suppressed or receiving necessary care. Multiple grants ranging between $2,000 and $5,000 will be awarded in December 2019.

Bee's Fund Microgrants
We are proud to offer grants that benefit LGBTQ individuals who have an express need for support. These microgrants, as we call them, range from $25 to $650, with some flexibility depending on the request. Right now, microgrants are made exclusively through the Bee Winkler Weinstein Fund and are awarded to help young women who have lost family support because of their sexual orientation or gender identity in becoming self-sufficient. Applicants must be between 18 and 25 years old, reside in the United States, and identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or trans.
Expenses that may be covered by a microgrant include, but are not limited to:
GED tutoring or classes
Uniforms necessary for work
Undergraduate college application fees
Vocational training, licensing, and testing fees
Domestic needs, such as bedding or rental security deposits
Securing legal name changes or gender-affirming IDs
Download the application. Applicants are required to include a statement that tells us a bit about herself and how these funds will help her grow and become self-sufficient. Please also note: when submitting, attach a copy of any written estimates, invoices, or promotional materials that verify expenses noted in the request for funding.
