The Community Partnership Council (CPC) is central to the mission of the DC CFAR to promote and support research in partnership with government and community. The CPC provides guidance to DC CFAR leadership, participates in reviewing and scoring pilot award applications, and provides community perspectives on the development and implementation of DC CFAR initiatives and activities.

The CPC is composed of prominent members of the DC HIV/AIDS community including many senior members of DC HIV Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), HIV research CABs of participating DC CFAR institutions and community clinics providing HIV services.
