Cancer Screening and Early Detection
- This award mechanism seeks to support the delivery of evidence-based clinical services to screen for cancer and pre-cancer in underserved populations who do not have adequate access to screening and early detection interventions and health care, bringing together networks of public health and community partners to carry out programs tailored for their communities. Projects should identify cancers that cause the most burden in the community, have nationally recommended screening methods, and use evidence-based methods to screen for these cancers. Delivery of clinical services is restricted to residents of Texas. Award: The amount of funding that applicants may request is dependent on whether the project is new or whether it’s an expansion. Please check the RFA for maximum amount and durations.
Dissemination of CPRIT-Funded Cancer Control Interventions
- This award mechanism seeks to fund programs that facilitate the sharing of successful CPRIT projects and uptake of CPRIT supported project findings and products through their dissemination and implementation across Texas. This award mechanism is open only to previously or currently funded CPRIT projects. Award: Applicants may request any amount of funding up to a maximum of $450,000 in total funding, over a maximum of 36 months.
Primary Prevention of Cancer
- This award mechanism seeks to fund multilevel interventions to reduce cancer risk, disease burden, and cancer disparities. Modifiable risk behaviors include tobacco use, obesity, physical inactivity, unhealthy eating, alcohol use, sun exposure, HPV vaccination, hepatitis B vaccination, and environmental/ occupational cancer exposures. Applications should also assess and address social determinants that contribute to cancer burden and disparities (e.g., cultural factors, unmet needs, access barriers). Interventions and communications should be structured to address the unique circumstances of the population to be served. Award: The amount of funding that applicants may request is dependent on the primary focus of the project and the type of expansion. Please check the RFA for maximum amount and durations.
