Regional Cancer Services Grants Available

December 20, 2019

Health systems and nonprofit organizations interested in implementing cancer control strategies in Wyoming are encouraged by the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) to apply for its regional coordinator grants.

The Wyoming Cancer Program is accepting applications for its Wyoming Cancer Resource Services (WCRS) Regional Coordinator Program. The purpose of this competitive application process is to select six regional sites throughout Wyoming to coordinate cancer control activities and patient navigation to support work outlined in the Wyoming Cancer Control Plan.

Selected applicants will be required to hire and manage regional program personnel, provide necessary fiscal functions, and oversee all needed administrative and human resource support including staff training and collaboration with WDH and other stakeholders.

Proposals will be considered from Wyoming tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations, and public and private organizations that are in good standing with the State of Wyoming. Health systems are encouraged to apply. Preference may be given to health systems or organizations with strong relationships with health systems. Sole applicants for a region will not be guaranteed the local grant award.

Applicants must be registered with the Systems for Award Management at www.sam.gov. Applications must be received by January 31. The anticipated contract term will be from July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2022.
