Grant Opportunity Available

The Indiana Cancer Consortium is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for a multi-phase grant initiative with select cancer centers or hospitals to focus on health systems change for tobacco treatment across Indiana. In order to help address the high smoking rates among those living with cancer, these funds support the development of statewide hospital and cancer treatment centers that are tasked with implementing evidence-based tobacco prevention and cessation efforts according to area needs. This funding opportunity includes a baseline assessment of current tobacco prevention and control practices and the development of a 12-month implementation work plan to address specific barriers and gaps in tobacco cessation efforts supported by the ICC Tobacco and Prevention Cessation Manager (TPC Manager).

Project funding is up to $26,000 dependent on the number of organizations awarded. The awarded organization(s) will commit to championing the long-term effort to develop and evaluate evidence-based policy, systems, and environmental change strategies, as outlined in the Indiana Cancer Control Plan. Complete details of project deliverables can be found in the request for application and technical assistance will be provided throughout the project period. 

Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, using a systematic technical acceptability review process. The quality and technical merits of the application will be scored using an objective set of criteria.
