Purpose

The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas provides funding for the delivery of evidence-based clinical services to screen for cancer and precancer in underserved populations who do not have adequate access to screening, early detection interventions, and healthcare. Rural and/or medically underserved populations must be included in the defined service area of proposed projects.

Program objectives include:

  • Deliver comprehensive projects that include public and/or professional education, outreach, delivery of clinical services, follow-up navigation to diagnosis and cancer treatment, and system and/or policy improvements
  • Offer effective and efficient systems of delivery of screening services based on the existing body of knowledge about and evidence
  • Implement policy changes and/or system improvements that are sustainable over time and treatment
  • Provide tailored, culturally appropriate outreach and accurate information on early detection and prevention to the public and healthcare professionals that results in a health impact that can be measured

Priority will be given to projects that address disparities in incidence and mortality rates of breast cancer and cervical cancer in racial/ethnic populations and underserved areas of the state.
