    • Uninsured and underinsured individuals
    • Medically unserved and underserved populations

    • Populations with low screening rates, high incidence rates, and high mortality rates,focusing on individuals never before screened or who are significantly out of compliance with nationally recommended screening guidelines
  • Geographic areas of the state disproportionately affected by cancer incidence, mortality, or cancer risk prevalence

Eligible applicants are Texas-based entities, such as:

  • Community-based organizations
  • Health institutions
