In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) budgeted approximately $580 million to address the domestic HIV and AIDS epidemic. These funds supported HIV surveillance, research, prevention, and evaluation activities (Appendix A). Of this amount, about $480 million was awarded by the National Center of HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) to support HIV prevention program activities in state and local health departments (HDs). In 2010, 59 HDs (50 state HDs, 6 directly-funded city HDs, and HDs in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) were funded under different funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) to deliver a wide range of HIV surveillance, prevention, and evaluation activities. Five FOAs were specific to HIV prevention activities (PS 10-1001, PS 10-10138, PS 10-10181, PS 10-10175, and PS 09-902). CDC provides an overall funding amount for HIV prevention to HDs and expects them to allocate their funds to interventions and other activities that focus on the populations at highest risk for acquiring HIV, based on epidemiological data. In addition, CDC expects that HDs have consulted with and obtained approvals from their HIV planning groups and that the funding allocation decisions are consistent with the general guidelines specified in each FOA. The allocation information is important for monitoring HIV prevention efforts at the national and local levels under these five FOAs and for planning the most effective distribution of prevention funds. The primary objective of this report is to describe how HDs, given their budget constraints, allocated their CDC prevention funds across interventions and populations to decrease HIV incidence. HDs were asked to report how they allocated their funds from the five FOAs for HIV prevention during calendar year (CY) 2010, including HIV prevention program activities and prevention interventions designed for persons living with HIV (PLWH). HDs were also asked to provide allocations by race/ethnicity and by HIV risk (referred to as "risk" in this document). Analyses of 2010 data were conducted and compared to findings from prior calendar years (2005-2009) to examine trends in funding allocations. A secondary objective of this report is to describe how the overall CDC HIV prevention funding allocations at the national level compared with the national HIV epidemic.
