Health Research, Inc. (HRI) and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Comprehensive Cancer Control Program are soliciting applications from organizations to conduct projects addressing priority areas of the New York State Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan in collaboration with the New York State Cancer Consortium (Consortium). Funded projects aim to fund local interventions that support Consortium action teams and other Cancer Plan priorities to address the burden of cancer in communities across the state. The Consortium is a voluntary network of individuals and organizations that collaborate to address New York’s cancer burden. The Consortium recommends statewide and local interventions to prevent skin cancer, promote the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, promote programs and services to increase quality of life for cancer survivors, promote lung cancer screening, and prevent and promote early detection of colorectal cancer.
This funding will support awards, valued at $1,000 each to implement one of the 15 community interventions listed below.
Intervention implementation must consider the COVID-19 status in the intended intervention community prior to implementation. Applicants are encouraged to propose virtual education sessions or include a plan to do so if that becomes necessary. Any in-person educational events must be implemented consistent with the current COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the event such that the participant numbers will be held to no more than state, regional and organizational guidelines allow, and all social distancing and other mitigation guidance is implemented.
