Community Partnership Program Funded Projects

The following projects have been previously funded by the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute Community Partnership Program. These projects serve a variety of populations in both urban and rural areas throughout Oregon. Each project focuses on a unique community-identified cancer need ranging from prevention to early detection to survivorship.

Read profiles of a sample of funded grants on the Grantee Stories page.

Community Action Model grants aim to build community capacity to address pressing cancer issues through a two-year, five-step process resulting in policy, systems and/or environmental changes, which can ultimately have a larger impact on improving public health than a single project and/or organization. The goal is to provide communities with the framework necessary to acquire or further develop the skills and resources needed to plan, implement and evaluate cancer-related actions and policies.
