FY21 Iowa Cancer Plan Implementation Grant, Invitation for Proposals

Every year, the Iowa Cancer Consortium Board of Directors invite members of the community to apply for funding in support of public health initiatives outlined within the 2018-2022 Iowa Cancer Plan. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and attention to racism as a public health issue, the board has outlined the following funding priorities for this application cycle:

  • Projects providing support for communities who hold the burden of both cancer and novel coronavirus.
  • Programs who identify creative ways to deliver cancer services and care within the new landscape created by the pandemic.
  • Projects addressing systemic racism and inequities across the cancer continuum.
  • Iowa Cancer Consortium grantees from last year (FY20) who willingly relinquished funds so that the Consortium could provide transportation and lodging support to cancer patients in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
