President's Discretionary

Leadership Greater Hartford

2018 - $22,000

This grant will fund listening sessions in the five Connecticut cities with the highest incidence of HIV (Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, Waterbury, and Stamford), with specific sessions intended to gather feedback from groups most heavily affected by HIV: gay men of color, black women, and transgender women. The information gathered through the listening sessions will help to potentially retool strategies for addressing HIV by focusing on groups that are most at risk and face the heaviest burden from the disease.
