About the Cancer Screening and Prevention and Cancer Control Grants Program
The Cancer Screening and Prevention and Cancer Control Grant Program provides funding to organisations working in cancer, health and other related services. These organisations will undertake evidence-based projects that have the potential to be embedded at a local level and to be sustainable past the funding period. The focus of these grants is community and service-centred initiatives and not research proposals.
To be eligible for funding in the 2022 round, the applicant must be a registered organisation working to improve health and/or cancer outcomes for multicultural communities and be based in and providing services to the multicultural population of NSW.
Eligible organisations include:
- Local Health Districts
- Other government organisations
- Primary Health Networks
- Community and non-government organisations
In 2022, the Cancer Screening and Prevention and Cancer Control Grants round has two priority areas:
- Priority area 1: Multicultural community education
- Priority area 2: Improve equity of outcomes for people affected by cancer from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Priority area objectives
Priority area 1: Multicultural community education
The purpose of the multicultural community education grants is to engage and support NSW multicultural organisations and units in the delivery of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) community education on cancer prevention and early detection topics. Ultimately, improving accessibility of information about and addressing barriers to uptake amongst these groups.
In 2022, the grants round will focus on the following programs:
- National Bowel Cancer Screening Program
- Breast cancer screening
- Cervical screening program
- Healthy living for cancer prevention
We invite organisations with strong working relationships with local multicultural communities to apply for grant funding to:
- Upskill staff within their organisations (with support from the Institute) to provide community education on a chosen cancer screening and prevention topic/s. Topics include healthy living behaviours, cervical screening and bowel and breast cancer screening.
- Deliver community education sessions on a chosen topic/s to people from CALD backgrounds using the Cancer Institute NSW resources below:
Priority area 2: Improve equity of outcomes for people affected by cancer from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
The purpose of these grants is to improve equity of cancer outcomes for multicultural communities, and to expand access to culturally safe and responsive services for patients and carers from multicultural background. The initiatives will need to align to the three overriding principles (equity of outcomes, person-centredness and collaboration) that guide the direction of the NSW Cancer Plan.
Applications must be completed in the Word template attached and submitted through the Grants Management System (GMS). Additionally, the signed application must be submitted as a PDF. Electronic signatures will be accepted as a result of work from home arrangements.
The closing date for applications is 5:00pm on Tuesday, 14 February 2023.
The project must commence in the 2022/23 financial year.
