Just a reminder that you are invited to submit a proposal for the Northern Plains Cancer Coalition Community Grants project in accordance with the requirements set forth in the attached Request for Proposal (RFP).
The Northern Plains Comprehensive Cancer Control Program has a funding opportunity open to tribes, tribal agencies, urban tribal programs, tribal non-profit organizations and other non-profit organizations serving American Indians in the Northern Plains region (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa). Applicant(s) must be a Northern Plains Cancer Coalition member or may apply for coalition membership at time of grant proposal submission.
The purpose of these community grants are to provide support to Northern Plains Cancer Coalition (NPCC) members to plan and implement community-initiated evidence based and promising practices approaches that contribute to cancer prevention, early detection, screening, and survivorship. In addition, the promotion of healthy lifestyles related to overall chronic disease prevention and control, and policy awareness and advocacy that may contribute to systems and environmental change in their own tribal communities/organizations that will help reach goals and objectives outlined in the Northern Plains American Indian Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan. The community grants need to include Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) approaches in their RFP.
