ETR is one of 17 organizations awarded a grant under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new program, PS19-1904: Capacity Building Assistance for High-Impact HIV Prevention Program Integration. The program is designed to support the proposed new federal initiative, Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America, by strengthening the capacity and improving the nation’s HIV prevention workforce.

The Evolve National HIV E-learning Training Center along with a second grantee, Health HIV, will develop and implement a standardized national e-learning training program to provide capacity building assistance (CBA) for High-Impact HIV Prevention (HIP) programs and to build the knowledge, skills and competencies of HIV prevention staff working in HIP projects across the U.S.

Evolve’s content expertise supports CBA for community-based organizations (CBOs) that work with people who are at a greater risk of contracting HIV/AIDS, and with CBOs working to support people living with HIV/AIDS. The national e-learning training program will offer accessible, Section 508-compliant services and materials in a full range of learning delivery modes: synchronous learning opportunities (live virtual and in-person), asynchronous learning opportunities (self-paced e-learning, instructional videos, resource development, and distribution), and blended learning opportunities (combining synchronous and asynchronous modalities).
