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 cancer 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. Award: Maximum of $1.5M for new projects and $2.5M for expansion projects; maximum duration of 60 months
Colorectal Cancer Screening Coordinating Center
- CPRIT seeks to support 1 Colorectal Cancer Screening Coordinating Center to establish and oversee a collaborative network of regional CPRIT-funded colorectal cancer screening projects, patients, communities, clinicians, and health care professionals. The Center will build the infrastructure necessary for a coordinated statewide evidence-based colorectal cancer screening initiative among all populations and geographic areas of Texas. The Center will serve as a hub of expertise and resources, forge innovative partnerships, catalyze interactions, and enable resource and data sharing among multiple stakeholders across the state to reduce the colorectal cancer burden in the state. Award: Maximum of $3M; maximum duration of 60 months.
Dissemination of CPRIT-Funded Cancer Control Interventions
- This award mechanism seeks to fund projects that will facilitate the dissemination and implementation of successful CPRIT-funded, evidence-based cancer prevention and control interventions across Texas. The proposed project should be?able?to develop one or more "products" based on the results of the CPRIT-funded intervention. The proposed project should also identify and assist others to prepare to implement the intervention and/or prepare for grant funding. Award: Maximum of $450,000; maximum duration of 36 months.
Primary Prevention of Cancer
- This award mechanism focuses on increasing implementation of evidence-based strategies to ensure that all Texans benefit from the cancer prevention knowledge that we currently have. CPRIT 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: Maximum of $1M for new projects and $2.5M for expansion projects; maximum duration of 60 months
