How can you request CBA?

For CDC directly-funded Community-Based Organizations - you can request capacity building assistance using the CBA Request Information System (CRIS).

Request CBA

For organizations that are indirectly funded or not funded by CDC and provide HIV Prevention Services, you can ask your local health department to submit a CBA request on your behalf through CRIS.
