CFAR Administrative Supplements


The FY2023 administrative supplements to support the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative is now published through a Notice of Special Interest. Please carefully review the application instructions.

Initial Selection Process:

Each CFAR is limited to three applications, there will be an internal review and selection process.

EHE Scientific Priorities for FY23:

  • Syndemic Approaches to HIV Prevention, Treatment or Care
    Objective: Using syndemic theory and approaches to (a) increase focus on intersecting diseases and social conditions that exacerbate health inequities, and (b) enhance the evidence base for effective successful approaches to assess, monitor, and intervene with respect to these intersections for optimal outcomes in HIV prevention or treatment.
  • Leveraging Pharmacies to Advance HIV Testing, Prevention, and Care
    Objective: This topic will support research projects designed to further capacitate, field, and scale the routine delivery of HIV testing, prevention, and care services through pharmacists and pharmacy settings in the U.S.
  • Strategies to Improve Linkage to HIV Care and Services Post-Incarceration
    Objective: Improving linkage and connection to mental health, substance use, social services, housing, job services, HIV care, and any other community resources post-incarceration. The goals are to optimize timely linkage to HIV care, retention, and viral suppression among people living with HIV (PLWH) re-entering their communities.
  • Cluster Detection and Response Strategies
    Objective: Using cluster detection and response strategies to address identified service gaps, reduce HIV-related health disparities, and contain outbreaks.

To participate in this process please send a one-page summary of your proposal with the following:

  1. The problem under study
  2. Specific approach
  3. Does it address one or more of the 4 projects outlined in the NOSI
  4. Does it target one or more of 50 priority jurisdictions or the 7 states with a substantial rural HIV burden
  5. Future plans for follow up funding.

PLEASE NOTE: We anticipate that the annual CFAR administrative supplements will be announced shortly. If your project does not fit with the above criteria, please consider this alternative funding pathway.

Why you should consider applying:


  • EHE supplements are less competitive than standard NIH funding
  • You can receive up to $300,000 to build partner relationships and gather preliminary data ($150,000 per year [direct costs] for up to 2 years)
  • You will have numerous, easy opportunities to receive group training and personalized guidance on implementation science by experts

Previous EHE supplement awards at Duke have led to—

  • Subsequent R34 funding
  • Publication in a JAIDS supplement on implementation science
  • New community-academic partnerships and new investigator partnerships within and outside of Duke
