The Rapid Response Fund (RRF), one channel of Frontline AIDS’ community involvement, helps with urgent situations where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, and men who have sex with men struggle to access HIV services because of stigma and discrimination – often leading to threats and violence. The Rapid Response Fund provides financial support both through emergency response grants and challenge-response grants.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with [Vera Solutions] in this last year. [Vera has] worked tirelessly on this project and I really appreciate all the hard work [the team] put into the system. I hope the relationship between Vera and Frontline AIDS continues.”
Vai Cheung – Former Lead: Business Planning & Analysis
Implementing Amp Core, the main program management objects of Amp Impact, Vera created a centralized place to track project delivery, program progression, and allocated funding. Incremental budget reports provide frequent insight into project financial progress and Many2Many enables Frontline AIDS to relate projects with other projects for simplified reporting. Through this structure, Frontline AIDS’ team has a constant pulse on thematic areas, sub-grant agreements, and projects.
Vera configured functionality enabling RRF applicants to self-register and apply for Challenge and Emergency funds via a Salesforce Customer Community. The community allows partner organizations to self-assess, peer-review, and build capacity through knowledge-sharing. Internally, Frontline AIDS uses the community portal to search for and assess organizations, based on their review criteria.
Through an Accreditation system remodel, Frontline AIDS can now help fund and support HIV-focused organizations with the highest accreditation levels in alignment with universal standards. The system allows for “self-accreditation” as well as peer reviews for increased accountability and connectivity with like-minded grantees.
