The North Carolina Community AIDS Fund is the primary service collaboration of CHPIR. NCCAF began as a vision to bring together funders from across the state to work together developing a new type of collaboration that would support HIV programs in North Carolina. Discussions began in early 2008 between state and national philanthropic leaders and in September the Center for Health Policy at Duke University was selected as the convener. The collective acknowledged that while local initiatives are needed, a statewide approach to HIV will increase the capacity of communities serving and improve the health of people living with and at risk of contracting HIV across North Carolina.

The North Carolina Community AIDS Fund began re-granting funds in the spring of 2009 to agencies across North Carolina providing prevention and care services. The emphasis is on prevention initiatives; however the NCCAF takes a creative view of prevention and the partners that need to be involved. The NCCAF website has an application form available on their grants page.

Every year, NCCAF hosts a team of National AIDS Fund AmeriCorps members who will come to the Triangle area. AmeriCorps members will work at local agencies providing HIV education, prevention, and care services as well as work together on community projects. If you are interested in applying for funding through the North Carolina Community AIDS Fund, hosting an AmeriCorps member, becoming an AmeriCorps member or receiving technical assistance, please visit the NCCAF website.
