CPRIT Prevention Program Assessment
- This award mechanism seeks to evaluate the initial progress of the CPRIT Prevention Program since 2010 and to develop an assessment plan for the next stage of the CPRIT Prevention Program using a mixed-methods approach that triangulates quantitative and qualitative data to provide evidence of effectiveness and information about how CPRIT-related changes are embedded and sustained in organizations and populations. The proposed effort should rely on existing data sources and will also involve new data collection as the project budget allows (eg, key informant interviews, case studies that involve both qualitative and quantitative data). Award: Maximum of $750k; Maximum duration of 24 months.
Evidence-Based Cancer Prevention Services
- This award mechanism seeks to fund projects that will deliver evidence-based cancer prevention and control clinical services. Priority will be given to projects that propose to address CPRIT areas of emphasis and serve areas of the state not well addressed by current CPRIT funded projects. Award: Maximum of $1M; Maximum duration of 36 months.
Expansion of Cancer Prevention Services to Rural and Medically Underserved Populations
- This award mechanism seeks to support the coordination and expansion of evidence based services to prevent cancer in underserved populations who do not have adequate access to cancer prevention 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 and use evidence based models to prevent and control these cancers. 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.
Tobacco Control and Lung Cancer Screening
- This award mechanism seeks to fund programs on tobacco prevention and cessation, as well as screening for early detection of lung cancer. Through release of this RFA, CPRIT’s goal is to stimulate more programs across the state, thereby providing greater access for underserved populations and reducing the incidence and mortality rates of tobacco-related cancers. This RFA seeks to promote and deliver evidence-based programming designed to significantly increase tobacco cessation among adults and/or prevent tobacco use by youth. Award: Maximum of $1M; Maximum duration of 36 months.
