Iowa Cancer Consortium FY18 Boost Grants


The intent of the Boost Grant program is to award funding to applicants who are currently carrying out cancer control projects in Iowa, but who could significantly increase the impact and/or reach of their work through a "boost" in funding.

Successful applicants will be able to:
  • Describe the evidence-based cancer control work they are currently carrying out.
  • Describe how the reach and/or impact of their work could be significantly increased with additional funding.
  • Explain how Boost Grant funds will be used to drive this increased reach and/or impact.
The Iowa Cancer Consortium will also consider applications to fund training or education that would increase the applicant’s ability to do cancer control work if the applicant can show a greater impact/reach as a result of the training or education. The applicant must also include a plan within their proposal to disseminate learned information/skills throughout Consortium partners.

The Iowa Cancer Consortium will also consider applications to fund training or education that would increase the applicant’s ability to do cancer control work if the applicant can show a greater impact/reach as a result of the training or education.
 
  Projects need to align with the newly-released 2018-2022 Iowa Cancer Plan. All applications will need to state at least one goal and action the project aligns with. Special consideration will be given to projects that demonstrate a dedication to the health equity priority. Priority will also be given to applications that plan to disseminate learned information and/or skills to Consortium partners, in an effort to increase sustainability and capacity for all partners.
