Special Call Funding Opportunities

2022-2 Special Call: Cancer Screening Communication Plans

In July 2022, the Community Partnership Program issued a Special Call for proposals to increase the awareness and utilization of early cancer screening opportunities in local communities (the application deadline has passed). Applicants are encouraged to view the resources available on the how to apply page and to contact us with questions.

In an effort to assist grantees with the development of a health communication plan this special call requires the use of the NIH/NCI Making Health Communications Programs Work (Aka the Pink Book) which uses an evidence-based approach to develop and implement a community-engaged cancer screening communication plan.
