New Media Microgrant Awardees

When we launched this blog over two years ago, we stated our commitment to learning along with you to find new and creative ways to use new media in response to HIV/AIDS. Last week, we continued to honor this commitment by making 17 microgrants to organizations that are planning for and implementing new media to respond to HIV among communities of color (funds were distributed by Team PSA Exit Disclaimer and the projects will be managed by John Snow, Inc. Exit Disclaimer ). We received many, many excellent project ideas from across the country — from New York to Michigan to Hawaii and Alaska.

We will be working with these organizations over the coming months to share their new media efforts and lessons learned (through guest posts here on the blog, among other things). We just held a conference call to introduce them to each other and and we’d also like to introduce them, and their projects, to you:

We are excited that these projects will explore how to use new media strategies and tools to expand their programs. These are some of the early adopters in the HIV community, and we look forward to sharing their experiences with you here on the blog!
